Neural and massively parallel computers: the sixth generation
This book bridges the gap between computer engineering and the life sciences. Treatment is straightforward, emphasizing functions, systems, and applications. Presents unified coverage of material that is scattered throughout the literature or previously unpublished. Covers modern trends in computing and control, including ongoing efforts to push beyond the current fifth generation towards more brain-like computers, and addresses current research in psychology and linguistics, examing the state-of-knowledge of perception, learning, and cognition. Different models of the brain are also examined. Describes new computing systems currently under development such as cognitrons, goal-directed systems, and pseudo-associative memories. Presents an overview of the biological signals and their computer processing, and describes selected models of biological information processing systems. Details a concrete example of a biological language that has been successfully decoded. Includes concrete chart flows and programs in BASIC.
