      Prediction in Criminology is the first book to bring together a wide variety of articles on prediction research in criminology. It stresses not only substantive findings but also the methodology of prediction research, and demonstrates how similar issues arise in many applications: problems of research design, the choice of predictor and criterion variables, methods of selecting and combining.

      The most important change in edition 2 of the book is that we have restricted our focus to time series forecasting. That is, we no longer consider the problem of cross-sectional prediction. Instead, all forecasting in this book concerns prediction of data at future times using observations collected in . Genome-Wide Association Studies and Genomic Prediction pulls together expert contributions to address this important area of study. The volume begins with a section covering the phenotypes of interest as well as design issues for GWAS, then moves on to discuss efficient computational methods to store and handle large datasets, quality control Brand: Humana Press.

Prediction Machines is a very interesting, well-written book that frames Artificial Intelligence in economic terms as delivering “cheap predictions.” This may sound trivial, but as the authors point out, when a strategic commodity becomes cheap, it can change by: The book follows several plots told from the points of view of several main characters whose lives all tie into each other.

The book begins with a thorough introduction to the protein structure prediction problem and is divided into four themes: a background on structure prediction, the prediction of structural elements, tertiary structure prediction, and functional insights.

Within those four sections, the following topics are covered. Predicting is an important reading strategy. It allows students to use information from the text, such as titles, headings, pictures and diagrams to anticipate what will happen in the story (Bailey, ). When making predictions, students envision what will come next in the text, based on their prior knowledge.
