The WISARD recognition system invented at Brunei University has been developed into an industrialised product by Computer Recognition Systems under licence from the British Technology Group. Using… Expand

About 12 years of work with a specific type of learning pattern-recognition system are reviewed, together with case studies in a variety of fields.Expand

Impossible Minds: My Neurons, My Consciousness has been written to satisfy the curiosity each and every one of us has about our own consciousness. It takes the view that the neurons in our heads are… Expand

In four parts, chapters take up neural computing from the classical perspective, including both foundational and current work; the mathematical perspective (of logic, automata theory, and probability theory), presenting less well-known work in which the neuron is modeled as a logic truth function that can be implemented in a direct way as a silicon read only memory.Expand

Designed for anyone with a general interest in science; students and researchers in computer studies, artificial intelligence, mathematics; psychologists and physiologists interested in attempts to make machines mimic brain function.Expand
