Neural and Concurrent Real-Time Systems: The Sixth Generation
Synopses & Reviews
A comprehensive introduction to neural and concurrent processing. Treatment is relatively self-contained--all the fundamentals are reviewed. Exposition is straightforward, with emphasis on functions, systems, and applications. Covers neural networks of varying granularity, systems realizing 40,000 mips, and a wide range of real-life applications. Describes intelligent real-time systems applications in intelligent instruments, data acquisition, signal and speech processing, computer vision and graphics, process control and manufacturing inspection, robots, decision-making systems, on-line simulators, and flexible manufacturing cells.
Book News Annotation:
This first book ever to be published on the subject includes real-time processes such as histogram and correlation measurements, power spectra, data sampling and quantization. Describes mapping, adaptation, and learning in very fine and medium granularity neural networks. Systems learning and self-organization, fuzzy reasoning, pattern recognition and classification are covered.
