Cognizers: Neural Networks and Machines that Think
One of the most dramatic developments in computer science has been the effort to create machines that duplicate the neurotransmitter biology of the human brain. Describing for the general reader how human neural networks work, the authors explain how this cutting-edge technology could be the breakthrough that makes artificial intelligence a reality. The approach combines history and hard science with exhaustive research, all presented in an engaging, lively writing style.
