Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика.Поставка под заказ. Описание: The theoretical foundations of Neural Networks and Analog Computation conceptualize neural networks as a particular type of computer consisting of multiple assemblies of basic processors interconnected in an intricate structure. Examining these networks under various resource constraints reveals a continuum of computational devices, several of which coincide with wellknown classical models. What emerges is a ChurchTuringlike thesis, applied to the field of analog computation, which features the neural network model in place of the digital Turing machine. This new concept can serve as a point of departure for the development of alternative, supraTuring, computational theories. On a mathematical level, the treatment of neural computations enriches the theory of computation but also explicated the computational complexity associated with biological networks, adaptive engineering tools, and related models from the fields of control theory and nonlinear dynamics.The topics covered in this work will appeal to a wide readership from a variety of disciplines. Special care has been taken to explain the theory clearly and concisely. The first chapter review s the fundamental terms of modern computational theory from the point of view of neural networks and serves as a reference for the remainder of the book. Each of the subsequent chapters opens with introductory material and proceeds to explain the chapterвЂ™s connection to the development of the theory. Thereafter, the concept is defined in mathematical terms.Although the notion of a neural network essentially arises from biology, many engineering applications have been found through highly idealized and simplified models of neuron behavior. Particular areas of application have been as diverse as explosives detection in airport security, signature verification, financial and medical times series prediction, vision, speech processing, robotics, nonlinear control, and signal processing. The focus in all of these models is entirely on the behavior of networks as computer.The theoretical foundations of Neural Networks and Analog Computation conceptualize neural networks as a particular type of computer consisting of multiple assemblies of basic processors interconnected in an intricate structure. Examining these networks under various resource constraints reveals a continuum of computational devices, several of which coincide with wellknown classical models. On a mathematical level, the treatment of neural computations enriches the theory of computation but also explicated the computational complexity associated with biological networks, adaptive engineering tools, and related models from the fields of control theory and nonlinear dynamics. The material in this book will be of interest to researchers in a variety of engineering and applied sciences disciplines. In addition, the work may provide the base of a graduatelevel seminar in neural networks for computer science students. Купить

Наличие на складе: Есть у поставщика.Поставка под заказ. Описание: The Turing Test gives the most comprehensive, in depth and contemporary assessment of this classic topic in artificial intelligence. This is the first book to elaborate in such detail the numerous conflicting points of view on many aspects of this multifaceted, controversial subject. It offers new insights into Turing's own interpretation and traces the history of the debate about the merits of the Turing test in more detail than anywhere else. Turing's famous predictions (1950) are assessed fifty years after they were made. The book also gives competing views about how the Turing test should be interpreted, and novel contemporary criticisms of the test. Justifications for the test and its future applications are suggested and alternatives to the Turing test are examined in detail. Recent results of the Loebner competition are analyzed. Купить

Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ. Описание: Dr Gregory Chaitin, one of the world's leading mathematicians, is best known for his discovery of the remarkable Ω number, a concrete example of irreducible complexity in pure mathematics which shows that mathematics is infinitely complex. In this volume, Chaitin discusses the evolution of these ideas, tracing them back to Leibniz and Borel as well as G?del and Turing.This book contains 23 nontechnical papers by Chaitin, his favorite tutorial and survey papers, including Chaitin's three Scientific American articles. These essays summarize a lifetime effort to use the notion of programsize complexity or algorithmic information content in order to shed further light on the fundamental work of G?del and Turing on the limits of mathematical methods, both in logic and in computation. Chaitin argues here that his informationtheoretic approach to metamathematics suggests a quasiempirical view of mathematics that emphasizes the similarities rather than the differences between mathematics and physics. He also develops his own brand of digital philosophy, which views the entire universe as a giant computation, and speculates that perhaps everything is discrete software, everything is 's and 1's.Chaitin's fundamental mathematical work will be of interest to philosophers concerned with the limits of knowledge and to physicists interested in the nature of complexity.
