The exponential progress and accessibility of computing has vastly increased data flows and revolutionized the practice of science, engineering, and communication. Computing plays a critical role in advancing research across almost every scientific discipline. Computation for Humanity: Information Technology to Advance Society is a guide for the creation of services, products, and tools that facilitate, support, and enhance progress of humanity toward more sustainable life. This book: * Provides a deep understanding of the practical applications of computation to solve human-machine problems * Delivers insight into theoretical approaches in an accessible manner * Provides a comprehensive overview of computational science and engineering applications in selected disciplines * Crosses the boundaries between different domains and shows how they interrelate and complement one another * Focuses on grand challenges and issues that matter for the future of humanity * Shows different perspectives of computational thinking, understanding, and reasoning * Provides a basis for scientific discoveries and enables adopting scientific theories and engineering practices from other disciplines * Takes a step back to provide a human-related abstraction level that is not ultimately seen in pure technological elaborations/collections The editors provide a collection of numerous computation-related projects that form a foundation from which to cross-pollinate between different disciplines and further extensive collaboration. They present a clear and profound understanding of computing in today's world, and provide fundamental solutions to some of the most pertinent humanity-related problems.
