The race for consciousness by J. G Taylor( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a sense among scientists that the time is finally ripe for the problem of consciousness to be solved once and for all. The development of new experimental and theoretical tools for probing the brain has produced an atmosphere of unparalleled optimism that the job can now be done properly: The race for consciousness is on!" "In this book, John Taylor describes the complete scene of entries, riders, gamblers, and racecourses. He presents his own entry into the race, which he has been working on for the past twenty-five years - the relational theory of consciousness, according to which consciousness is created through the relations between brain states, especially those involving memories of personal experiences."--Jacket

The mind : a user's manual by J. G Taylor( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is written for those who are curious about their own minds, especially those interested in their own consciousness. We all use our minds differently and this book lays a foundation for a truly individual yet comprehensive view based on the detailed understanding that science can now bring to our own individual experiences. It will also help people to get more out of their lives by increasing the richness of their own experiences. Preventing this richness from descending into chaos is a difficult matter, but if the mind is understood it can more easily be kept in order
Mathematical approaches to neural networks by J. G Taylor( Book )

14 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subject of Neural Networks is coming of age, after its initial inception 50 years ago in the seminal work of McCulloch and Pitts. It is proving to be valuable in a wide range of academic disciplines and in important applications in industrial and business tasks. The progress being made in each approach is considerable. Nevertheless, both stand in need of a theoretical framework of explanation to underpin their usage and to allow the progress being made to be put on a firmer footing. This book aims to strengthen the foundations in its presentation of mathematical approaches to neural networks. It is through these that a suitable explanatory framework is expected to be found. The approaches span a broad range, from single neuron details to numerical analysis, functional analysis and dynamical systems theory. Each of these avenues provides its own insights into the way neural networks can be understood, both for artificial ones and simplified simulations. As a whole, the publication underlines the importance of the ever-deepening mathematical understanding of neural networks

Concepts for Neural Networks - A Survey provides a wide-ranging survey of concepts relating to the study of neural networks. It includes chapters explaining the basics of both artificial neural networks and the mathematics of neural networks, as well as chapters covering the more philosophical background to the topic and consciousness. There is also significant emphasis on the practical use of the techniques described in the area of robotics. Containing contributions from some of the world's leading specialists in their fields (including Dr. Ton Coolen and Professor Igor Aleksander), this volume will provide the reader with a good, general introduction to the basic concepts needed to understan d and use neural network technology
Theory and applications of neural networks : proceedings of the First British Neural Network Society Meeting, London by British Neural Network Society( Book )

21 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and German and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the papers presented at the first British Neural Network Society Meeting (NMC '90) held at King's College London, on 18-20 April 1990. The meeting was sponsored by the London Mathematical Society. The papers include introductory tutorial lectures, invited, and contributed papers. The invited contributions were given by experts from the USA, Finland, Denmark, Germany and the UK. The first day was devoted to tutorials. Professor Stephen Grossberg (Boston University) was a guest speaker on the first day, giving a thorough introduction to his adaptive resonance theory of neural networks. Subsequent tutorials covered dynamical systems and neural networks, realistic neural modelling, pattern recognition using neural networks, and a review of hardware for neural network simulations. The contributed papers, given on the second day, demonstrated the breadth of interests of workers in the field. They covered topics in pattern recognition, multi-layer feedforward neural networks, network dynamics, memory, and learning. On the final day, talks were given by Professor Kohonen (on self organising maps), Professor Kürten (on the dynamics of random and structured nets) and Professor Cotterill (on modelling the visual cortex). Dr. Mayes presented a paper on various models for amnesia. The ordering of the papers in this volume is as they were given at the meeting and the editors have taken the opportunity to include a paper of their own which was not presented
Neural networks and the financial markets : predicting, combining, and portfolio optimisation by Jimmy Shadbolt( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume looks at financial prediction from a broad range of perspectives. It covers: the economic arguments; the practicalities of the markets; how predictions are used; how predictions are made; and how predictions are turned into something usable (asset locations). It combines a discussion of standard theory with material on information processing techniques as applied to financial problems. All the techniques are demonstrated with real examples using actual market data, and show that it is possible to extract information from very noisy, sparse data sets
Perception-action cycle : models, architectures and hardware by Vassilis Cutsuridis( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The perception-action cycle is the circular flow of information that takes place between the organism and its environment in the course of a sensory-guided sequence of behavior towards a goal. Each action causes changes in the environment that are analyzed bottom-up through the perceptual hierarchy and lead to the processing of further action, and top-down through the executive hierarchy toward motor effectors. These actions cause new changes that are analyzed and lead to new action, and so the cycle continues. The Perception-Action cycle: Models, Architectures and Hardware book provides focused and easily accessible reviews of various aspects of the perception-action cycle. It is an unparalleled resource of information that will be an invaluable companion to anyone in constructing and developing models, algorithms, and hardware implementations of autonomous machines empowered with cognitive capabilities. The book is divided into three main parts. In the first part, leading computational neuroscientists present brain-inspired models of perception, attention, cognitive control, decision making, conflict resolution and monitoring, knowledge representation and reasoning, learning and memory, planning and action, and consciousness grounded in experimental data. In the second part, architectures, algorithms, and systems with cognitive capabilities and minimal guidance from the brain are discussed. These architectures, algorithms, and systems are inspired by cognitive science, computer vision, robotics, information theory, machine learning, computer agents, and artificial intelligence. In the third part, the analysis, design, and implementation of hardware systems with robust cognitive abilities from the areas of mechatronics, sensing technology, sensor fusion, smart sensor networks, control rules, controllability, stability, model/knowledge representation, and reasoning are discussed. About the Editors: Vassilis Cutsuridis is a Senior Research Scientist at the Center for Memory and Brain at Boston University, Boston, USA. Amir Hussain is a Reader in Computing Science in the Department of Computing Science and Mathematics at the University of Stirling, UK. John G. Taylor is an Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at King's College, London, UK
Solving the mind-body problem by the CODAM neural model of consciousness? by J. G Taylor( Book )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book details a model of consciousness supported by scientific experimental data from the human brain. It presents how the Corollary Discharge of Attention Movement (CODAM) neural network model allows for a scientific understanding of consciousness as well as provides a solution to the Mind-Body problem. The book provides readers with a general approach to consciousness that is powerful enough to lead to the inner self and its ramifications for the vast range of human experiences. It also offers an approach to the evolution of human consciousness and features chapters on mental disease (especially schizophrenia) and on meditative states (including drug-induced states of mind). Solving the Mind-Body Problem bridges the gap that exists between philosophers of mind and the neuroscience community, allowing the enormous weight of theorizing on the nature of mind to be brought to earth and put under the probing gaze of the scientific facts of life and mind
