Implementing Responsible Research and Innovation

release date: Aug 14, 2020
Implementing Responsible Research and Innovation
This open access book offers a unique and practically oriented study of organisational and national conditions for implementing Responsible Research Innovation (RRI) policies and practices. It gives the reader a thorough understanding of the different aspects of RRI, and of barriers and drivers of implementation of RRI related policies. It shows how different organisational and national contexts provide unique challenges and opportunities for bringing RRI into practice. The book provides concrete examples and offers the reader both a theory-based understanding of the topic, as well as guidance for action. The target audience encompasses, in addition to RRI students and scholars in particular, all students and scholars in the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS). The book is also of interest to students and scholars in the fields of research ethics, philosophy of science, organisational governance in the research system and organisational theory more generally. Finally, the book is of use to practitioners in research conducting and funding organisations working to implement RRI.

Always Hungry?

release date: Jan 05, 2016
Always Hungry?
Leading Harvard Medical School expert and "obesity warrior" (Time magazine) Dr. David Ludwig rewrites the rules on weight loss, diet, and health in this guide to retraining your cells and reclaiming your health for life. Forget everything you've been taught about dieting. In Always Hungry?, renowned endocrinologist Dr. David Ludwig explains why traditional diets don't work and presents a radical new plan to help you lose weight without hunger, improve your health, and feel great. For over two decades, Dr. Ludwig has been at the forefront of research into weight control. His groundbreaking studies show that overeating doesn't make you fat; the process of getting fat makes you overeat. That's because fat cells play a key role in determining how much weight you gain or lose. Low-fat diets work against you by triggering fat cells to hoard more calories for themselves, leaving too few for the rest of the body. This "hungry fat" sets off a dangerous chain reaction that leaves you feeling ravenous as your metabolism slows down. Cutting calories only makes the situation worse by creating a battle between mind and metabolism that we're destined to lose. You gain more weight even as you struggle to eat less food. Always Hungry? turns dieting on its head with a three-phase program that ignores calories and targets fat cells directly. The recipes and meal plan include luscious high-fat foods (like nuts and nut butters, full-fat dairy, avocados, and dark chocolate), savory proteins, and natural carbohydrates. The result? Fat cells release their excess calories, and you lose weight - and inches - without battling cravings and constant hunger. This is dieting without deprivation. Forget calories. Forget cravings. Forget dieting. Always hungry? reveals a liberating new way to tame hunger and lose weight for good.

A Pluralist Theory of the Mind

release date: Oct 22, 2015
A Pluralist Theory of the Mind
This book challenges common debates in philosophy of mind by questioning the framework of placement problems in contemporary metaphysics. The author argues that placement problems arise when exactly one fundamental ontology serves as the base for all entities, and will propose a pluralist alternative that takes the diversity of our conceptual resources and ontologies seriously. This general pluralist account is applied to issues in philosophy of mind to argue that contemporary debates about the mind-body problem are built on this problematic framework of placement problems. The starting point is the plurality of ontologies in scientific practice. Not only can we describe the world in terms of physical, biological, or psychological ontologies, but any serious engagement with scientific ontologies will identify more specific ontologies in each domain. For example, there is not one unified ontology for biology, but rather a diversity of scientific specializations with different ontological needs. Based on this account of scientific practice the author argues that there is no reason to assume that ontological unification must be possible everywhere. Without this ideal, the scope of ontological unification turns out to be an open empirical question and there is no need to present unification failures as philosophically puzzling “placement problems”.

A Neurobiologically-Inspired Deep Learning Framework for Autonomous Context Learning

release date: Jan 01, 2020
A Neurobiologically-Inspired Deep Learning Framework for Autonomous Context Learning
Neurobiologically-inspired working memory models have managed to accurately demonstrate and explain our ability to rapidly adapt and alter our responses to the environment.However, the applications of these working memory models have been limited to reinforcement learning problems. Furthermore, the incorporation of contextual/switchingmechanisms outside of the realm of working memory modeling for general-use cases hasalso been relatively unexplored. We present a new framework compatible with TensorflowKeras enabling the straightforward integration of working memory-inspired mechanismsinto typical neural network architectures. These mechanisms allow models to autonomouslylearn multiple tasks, statically or dynamically allocated. We also examine the generalizationof the framework across a variety of multi-context supervised learning and reinforcementlearning tasks. The resulting experiments successfully integrate these mechanisms withmultilayer and convolutional neural network architectures. The diversity of problems solveddemonstrates the framework's generalizability across a variety of architectures and tasks.

Tri-Service Procedural Guidelines for Ecological Risk Assessments

release date: May 01, 1996
Tri-Service Procedural Guidelines for Ecological Risk Assessments
The purpose of this report is to provide guidance for conducting ERAs for use by risk assessors at Navy, Air Force, and Army installations. Each of the three services has a support center which is available to provide guidance and programatic services. The three members are: U.S. Army Environmental Center (AEC), Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center, and the Air Force Center for Environmental Excellence. Using this approach will provide the Tri- Service Centers with cost-effective, tiered procedures with which to direct and coordinate the scientific and technical efforts of contractors involved in ERA. Employing a common framework across sites will assure that the requirements of state and federal regulators are satisfied. The process described in this report follows the paradigm put forward in the 1992 Environmental Protection Agency Report entitled 'Framework for Ecological Risk Assessment.' Volume 2 contains information on more than 100 environmental models and test methods.
