Microprocessors and the VLSI chips that are the intelligent heart of any computing... More > device have become cheaper, more powerful, compact and energy efficient. Microprocessors are capable of operating on a larger number of bytes and have found application in diverse areas such as the automobile, building control systems, battery powered intelligent stand alone systems, mobile devices and intelligent appliances. The marriage of communications technologies and computing have made it possible to communicate with intelligent machines over vast distances and it is possible to instruct a smart device, such as a heater or an air conditioner, at home to switch from a remote location.

Investigating Human Cancer with Computational intelligence Techniques By Alfredo Vellido, Paulo Lisboa
Paperback: $43.28
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Human cancer is at an important frontier of medical research, and one where Computational Intelligence methods have made substantial inroads in recent years. Computational Intelligence research in... More > cancer now reaches all biological scales from human population down to the phenotype and genotype. It is also fair to say that it reaches the complete range of cancer pathologies. This book does not aim to achieve such completeness of coverage. Instead, the studies included in it should provide readers with a broad palette and a hopefully useful taster of what Computational Intelligence methods can achieve in the field. This volume contains an overview of the field and a collection of eight leading-edge studies from research teams composed of experts in the field on various aspects of the subject.< Less
Computational Intelligence Techniques applied to Electrophysiological Data Analysis By Alejandro Riera Sardà
Hardcover: $65.88

PhD of Alejandro Riera. This work contains the efforts I have made in the last years in the field of Electrophysiological data analysis. Most of the work has been done at Starlab Barcelona S.L. and... More > part of it at the Neurodinamics Laboratory of the Department of Psychiatry and Clinical Psychobiology of the University of Barcelona. The main work deals with the analysis of EEG signals, although other signals have also been used. Several data sets have been collected and analysed applying advanced Signal Processing techniques. On a later stage Computational Intelligence techniques, such as Machine Learning and Genetic Algorithms, have been applied, mainly to classify the different conditions from the EEG data sets. 3 applications involving EEG and classification are proposed corresponding to each one of the 3 case studies presented in this thesis: • Analysis of Electrophysiological signals for biometric purposes. • EEG differences in First Psychotic Episode Patients. • Markers of stress in the EEG signal.< Less

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the science of making machines do things that would require intelligence if done by humans; sensing, reasoning, pattern recognition, speech recognition, and... More > problem-solving. AI is an area of research that goes back to the very beginnings of computer science. The idea of building a machine that can perform tasks perceived as requiring human intelligence is an attractive one. The degree of sophistication that constitutes AI tends to be revised upwards with each new generation of computers. At its most ambitious level AI has the goal of creating computers and robots capable of reproducing a broad range of human behaviour. Unlike the human brain, most computers act serially, one operation at a time. Even supercomputers developed in the 1980s that use 'parallel processing' to carry out billions of operations per second barely begin to match human brain capacity.< Less

Competing for a $30 million prize, a team is developing an unmanned lunar rover. Reporter Midge McConnell becomes suspicious of the rover’s human-like performance. Her investigations will take... More > her to the halls of academia, to the Air Force’s Satellite Headquarters, onto a lethally guarded Texas research site, inside an exotic lakeside Chinese Sanatorium, and to a Chinese rocket site. What she discovers will put her squarely on the horns of a moral dilemma. International relations here on earth, and perhaps the survival of the human species in future space colonies will depend on her choice. English physicist Stephen Hawking proclaimed that the future survival of the human species depends on space travel. A former NASA official said that until we can engineer a tiny person, long space trips carrying human intelligence is not practical. Could an autonomous intelligent computer bridge this gap? Would it act morally? The dilemma is solved by a terminally ill quadriplegic’s immoral human decision.< Less

During the System States' War, Poictesme was the general HQ and supply depot for the final thrust at the enemy. When the war ended, the buildings, the munitions, the freeze-dried food supplies, were... More > all abandoned without a thought. Now the colony world is a poverty-stricken agricultural society with only two exports: the fermented products of their world's unique grapes, and the salvaged war equipment, now selling at about 1% of its true value. And, persisting over the decades, is the legend of MERLIN, the super-computer said to have planned the grand strategy which successfully concluded the war. "If we could only find Merlin," the inhabitants said to each other, "all our problems would be solved." Then young Conn Maxwell returned from Earth, with a university degree, and a few clues about the location and the true nature of Merlin. And the sure knowledge that finding the Cosmic Computer would be the worst thing that could possibly happen to his home world.< Less
