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.
