Neural network engineering in dynamic control systems by K. J Hunt( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The series Advances in Industrial Control aims to report and encourage technology transfer in control engineering. The rapid development of control technology impacts all areas of the control discipline. New theory, new controllers, actuators, sensors, new industrial processes, computer methods, new applications, new philosophies, .... , new challenges. Much of this development work resides in industrial reports, feasibility study papers and the reports of advanced collaborative projects. The series offers an opportunity for researchers to present an extended exposition of such new work in all aspects of industrial control for wider and rapid dissemination. Within the control community there has been much discussion of and interest in the new Emerging Technologies and Methods. Neural networks along with Fuzzy Logic and Expert Systems is an emerging methodology which has the potential to contribute to the development of intelligent control technologies. This volume of some thirteen chapters edited by Kenneth Hunt, George Irwin and Kevin Warwick makes a useful contribution to the literature of neural network methods and applications. The chapters are arranged systematically progressing from theoretical foundations, through the training aspects of neural nets and concluding with four chapters of applications. The applications include problems as diverse as oven tempera­ ture control, and energy/load forecasting routines. We hope this interesting but balanced mix of material appeals to a wide range of readers from the theoretician to the industrial applications engineer

March of the machines : the breakthrough in artificial intelligence by Kevin Warwick( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While horror films and science fiction have repeatedly warned of robots running amok, [the author] takes the threats out of the realm of fiction and into the real world, truly giving us something to worry about. Meeting skeptics head on, Warwick goes beyond his penetrating attacks on their assumptions and prejudices about what should be considered as intelligence to reveal what he has already achieved: building robots that communicate in their own language, share experiences, teach each other lessons, and behave as they wish with regard to human beings. ... [this book] is part history of robotics, part futurism. It surveys the substantial advances made in artificial intelligence over the past century while looking ahead to an increasingly uneasy relationship between humans and machines"--Back cover

Turing's imitation game : conversations with the unknown by Kevin Warwick( Book )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can you tell the difference between talking to a human and talking to a machine? Or, is it possible to create a machine which is able to converse like a human? In fact, what is it that even makes us human? Turing's Imitation Game, commonly known as the Turing Test, is fundamental to the science of artificial intelligence. Involving an interrogator conversing with hidden identities, both human and machine, the test strikes at the heart of any questions about the capacity of machines to behave as humans. While this subject area has shifted dramatically in the last few years, this book offers an up-to-date assessment of Turing's Imitation Game, its history, context and implications, all illustrated with practical Turing tests. The contemporary relevance of this topic and the strong emphasis on example transcripts makes this book an ideal companion for undergraduate courses in artificial intelligence, engineering or computer science."--
Computer-intensive methods in control and signal processing : the curse of dimensionality by M Kárný( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Due to the rapid increase in readily available computing power, a corre­ sponding increase in the complexity of problems being tackled has occurred in the field of systems as a whole. A plethora of new methods which can be used on the problems has also arisen with a constant desire to deal with more and more difficult applications. Unfortunately by increasing the ac­ curacy in models employed along with the use of appropriate algorithms with related features, the resultant necessary computations can often be of very high dimension. This brings with it a whole new breed of problem which has come to be known as "The Curse of Dimensionality" . The expression "Curse of Dimensionality" can be in fact traced back to Richard Bellman in the 1960's. However, it is only in the last few years that it has taken on a widespread practical significance although the term di­ mensionality does not have a unique precise meaning and is being used in a slightly different way in the context of algorithmic and stochastic complex­ ity theory or in every day engineering. In principle the dimensionality of a problem depends on three factors: on the engineering system (subject), on the concrete task to be solved and on the available resources. A system is of high dimension if it contains a lot of elements/variables and/or the rela­ tionship/connection between the elements/variables is complicated

Mutual impact of computing power and control theory( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent rapid developments in computing power, such as parallel processing and neural networks, have stimulated new trends in control. However a discrepancy exists between available computing power and exploitable algorithms obtained classically from control theory. The aim of this book is to address the discrepancy from both the com­ putational power and control theory viewpoints. Areas such as identification, adaptive control, signal processing and neural networks therefore hold a prominent position in the text presented. The form of the book is such that it should be useful for readers at various levels, particularly those at the research and/or application stage. The book has resulted from the IFAC Workshop on the Mutual Impact of Computing Power and Control Theory, which was held at the Institute of Information Theory and Automation (UTIA), Prague, in September 1992. Organisation of the event was provided jointly by the Department of Adaptive Systems, UTIA, Prague and the School of Engineering and Information Sciences, University of Reading, UK. Selected papers from the Workshop have been chosen to give a good balance across the field, whilst at the same time highlighting important areas for future research. In this way the book represents edited Proceedings from the Workshop. One point, quickly apparent, is the international nature of the presentations themselves, which provide not only a technical appraisal of the field but also inject cultural aspects which are vitally important on the path ahead
I, cyborg by Kevin Warwick( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and Korean and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In I, Cyborg, Professor Kevin Warwick, the world's leading expert in cybernetics, unveils the story of how he became the world's first Cyborg - a Cybernetic Organism - part human, part machine, in a groundbreaking set of scientific experiments." "He believes that in the years ahead we will witness machines with an intelligence more powerful than that of humans, and that robots, not humans, will make all the important decisions. A robot-dominated world might well have dire consequences for humankind; but is there, he asks, an alternative way ahead? Can we use technology to upgrade ourselves, to improve on our comparatively limited capabilities, to harness the ever-increasing abilities of machine intelligence, to access extra-sensory input and to communicate in a much richer way, using thought alone?" "In fact, all of this is more than just a theoretical possibility. Here, Kevin Warwick reveals how he has taken the first practical steps on this fascinating path, using himself as a guinea pig receiving, by surgical operation, technological implants connected to his central nervous system."--Jacket
