Information engineering (field)

Information engineering is the engineering discipline that deals with the generation, distribution and use of information and knowledge in systems. The field first became identifiable in the early 21st century; the components of information engineering include more theoretical fields such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, control theory, signal processing, information theory, more applied fields such as computer vision, natural language processing, medical image computing, autonomous robotics, mobile robotics, telecommunications. Many of these originate from computer science, as well as other branches of engineering such as computer engineering, electrical engineering, bioengineering; the field of information engineering is based on mathematics probability, calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, variational calculus, complex analysis. Information engineers hold a degree in information engineering or a related area, are part of a professional body such as the Institution of Engineering and Technology or Institute of Measurement and Control.

They are employed in all industries due to the widespread use of information engineering. The term information engineering used to refer to a software engineering methodology, now more known as information technology engineering or information engineering methodology, it began to gain its current meaning early on in the 21st century. Machine learning is the field that involves the use of statistical and probabilistic methods to let computers "learn" from data without being explicitly programmed. Data science involves the application of machine learning to extract knowledge from data. Subfields of machine learning include deep learning, supervised learning, unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, semi-supervised learning, active learning. Causal inference is another related component of information engineering. Control theory refers to the control of dynamical systems, with the aim being to avoid delays, overshoots, or instability. Information engineers tend to focus more on control theory rather than the physical design of control systems and circuits.

Subfields of control theory include classical control, optimal control, nonlinear control. Signal processing refers to the generation and use of signals, which could take many forms such as image, electrical, or biological. Information theory studies the analysis and storage of information. Major subfields of information theory include data compression. Computer vision is the field that deals with getting computers to understand image and video data at a high level. Natural language processing deals with getting computers to understand human languages at a high level; this means text, but often includes speech processing and recognition. Bioinformatics is the field that deals with the analysis and use of biological data; this means topics such as genomics and proteomics, sometimes includes medical image computing. Cheminformatics is the field that deals with the analysis and use of chemical data. Robotics in information engineering focuses on the algorithms and computer programs used to control robots.

As such, information engineering tends to focus more on mobile, or probabilistic robots. Major subfields studied by information engineers include control, perception, SLAM, motion planning. In the past some areas in information engineering such as signal processing used analog electronics, but nowadays most information engineering is done with digital computers. Many tasks in information engineering can be parallelized, so nowadays information engineering is carried out using CPUs, GPUs, AI accelerators. There has been interest in using quantum computers for some subfields of information engineering such as machine learning and robotics.

Tuffite

Tuffite is a tuff containing both pyroclastic and detrital materials, but predominantly pyroclasts. According to IUGS definition tuffite contains 75% to 25% volcanic material. There are several classifications; the classification present in the IUGS recommendation are based on the definition established by Schmid. Shvetsov defined tuffites as rocks containing 50-90% of the volcanic fragments. Tuffite should therefore contain more than half of volcanic material. If rock contains more than 75% to 90% of pyroclastic material it is referred to as tuff; some other older sources state that tuffite may contain 10-50% volcanic material. The adjective tuffitic is used for sediments containing less than 25% volcanic fragments. A tuffite consists of angular and/or rounded fragments of effusive rocks and their minerals may contain volcanic ash and clay minerals. Nonvolcanic material may consist of chemical precipitates or organogenic components. Quartz or mica and an admixture of carbonates, siliceous rock fragments or organic remains may be common
