Philips Research Book #7: Intelligent Algorithms in Ambient and Biomedical Computingby Wim F. J. Verhaegh
Synopses & Reviews
The rapid growth in electronic systems in the past decade has boosted research in the area of computational intelligence. As it has become increasingly easy to generate, collect, transport, process, and store huge amounts of data, the role of intelligent algorithms has become prominent in order to visualize, manipulate, retrieve, and interpret the data. For instance, intelligent search techniques have been developed to search for relevant items in huge collections of web pages, and data mining and interpretation techniques play a very important role in making sense out of huge amounts of biomolecular measurements. As a result, the added value of many modern systems is no longer determined by hardware only, but increasingly by the intelligent software that supports and facilitates the user in realizing his or her objectives. This book is the outcome of a series of discussions at the Philips Symposium on Intelligent Algorithms, which was held in Eindhoven in December 2004. It contains many exciting and practical examples of the use of intelligent algorithms in the areas of ambient and biomedical computing. It contains topics such as bioscience computing, database design, machine consciousness, scheduling, video summarization, audio classification, semantic reasoning, machine learning, tracking & localization, secure computing, and communication.
