How to build a mind : toward machines with imagination by Igor Aleksander( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interweaving anecdotes from his own life and research with imagined dialogues between historical figures - including Descartes, Locke, Hume, Kant, Wittgenstein, Francis Crick, and Steven Pinker - Aleksander leads readers toward an understanding of consciousness. He shows not only how the latest work with artificial neural systems suggests that an artificial form of consciousness is possible but also that its design would clarify many of the puzzles surrounding the murky concepts of consciousness itself. How to Build a Mind also examines the presentation of "self" in robots, the learning of language, and the nature of emotion, will, instinct, and feelings."--Jacket
Neural computing architectures : the design of brain-like machines by Igor Aleksander( Book )

23 editions published between 1988 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"McClelland and Rumelhart's Parallel Distributed Processing was the first book to present a definitive account of the newly revived connectionist/neural net paradigm for artificial intelligence and cognitive science. While Neural Computing Architectures addresses the same issues, there is little overlap in the research it reports. These 18 contributions provide a timely and informative overview and synopsis of both pioneering and recent European connectionist research. Several chapters focus on cognitive modeling; however, most of the work covered revolves around abstract neural network theory or engineering applications, bringing important complementary perspectives to currently published work in PDP.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. They present new material both in the form of analytical tools and models and as suggestions for implementation in optical form, and summarize the PDP perspective in a single extended chapter covering PDP theory, application, and speculation in US research. Each part is introduced by the editor."

Impossible minds : my neurons, my consciousness by Igor Aleksander( Book )

35 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 the source of consciousness and attempts to explain how this happens. Although it talks of neural networks, it explains what they are and what they do, in such a way that anyone may understand. This book is also a story. A story of a land where people think that they are automata without much in the way of consciousness, a story of cormorants and cliffs by the sea, a story of what it might be like t

Artificial intelligence and its potential as an aid to vocational training and education by European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training( Book )

12 editions published in 1988 in English and German and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document contains a series of papers which attempt to de-mystify the subject of artificial intelligence and to show how some countries in the European Community (ec) are approaching the promotion of development and application of artificial intelligence systems that can be used as an aid in vocational training programs, as well as to stimulate discussion and an exchange of information throughout the ec. The six papers included in the report are "Artificial Intelligence and Training--An Initial Assessment" (I. Aleksander); "Artificial Intelligence and Education--Some Lines of Reflection" (M. Vivet); "Expert Systems in Training" (D. Kerr); "Artificial Intelligence Applications to Learning" (J. Gillingham); "Modeling an Automatic Tutor by Dynamic Planning--An Automatic Tutor Integrated in an Intelligent Computer-Aided Instruction System" (M. Fernandez de Castro, A. Sanchez, and M. Maillo); and "Tutorial Expert Systems Project" (P. Lees). (Kc)
Introduction of artificial vision in manufacturing and inspection work and its training implications : a workshop meeting, 6 and 7 November 1985 by European Centre for the Development of Vocational Training( Book )

Artificial neural networks, 2 : proceedings of the 1992 International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (ICANN-92), Brighton, United Kingdom, 4-7 September 1992 by Igor Aleksander( Book )

17 editions published in 1992 in 3 languages and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume proceedings compilation is a selection of research papers presented at the ICANN-92. The scope of the volumes is interdisciplinary, ranging from the minutiae of VLSI hardware, to new discoveries in neurobiology, through to the workings of the human mind. USA and European research is well represented, including not only new thoughts from old masters but also a large number of first-time authors who are ensuring the continued development of the field

The world in my mind, my mind in the world by Igor Aleksander( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not consciousness, but knowledge of consciousness: that is what this book communicates. Consciousness is the thread that links the disappearing gorilla with the octopus suffering from a stomach ache, and the person under anaesthetic with a new born baby. How these are different, yet illustrative of consciousness, is revealed in this book." "Igor Aleksander addresses this enigmatic topic, by making us understand the difference between what happens to us when thinking consciously and when sort of thinking when dreaming or when not conscious at all, as when sleeping, anaesthetised or knocked out by a blow on the head."--Jacket
