The definitive survey of computational intelligence from luminaries in the field Computational intelligence is a fast-moving, multidisciplinary field - the nexus of diverse technical interest areas that include neural networks, fuzzy logic, and evolutionary computation. Keeping up with computational intelligence means understanding how it relates to an ever-expanding range of applications. This is the book that ties it all together - and puts that understanding well within your reach. In Computational Intelligence: The Experts Speak, editors David B. Fogel and Charles J. Robinson present an unmatched compilation of expanded papers from plenary and special lecturers attending the 2002 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence. Collectively, these papers provide a compelling snapshot of the issues that define the industry, as observed by some of the top minds in the computational intelligence community. In a series of topical chapters, this comprehensive volume shows how current technology is shaping computational intelligence, and it delivers eye-opening insights into the field's future challenges. The research detailed here covers an array of leading-edge applications, from coevolutionary robotics to underwater sensors and cognitive science, in such areas as: Self-organizing systems Situation awareness Human-machine interaction Automatic control Data recognition Computational Intelligence also includes introductions to each grouping of contributions that provide helpful tutorials and discuss important parallels between topics. Whatever your role might be in this dynamic, influential field, this is the one reference that no practitioner of computational intelligence should be without.

Two months before the Wright brothers' historic flight at Kitty Hawk, a top scientist declared that "no possible combination of known substances, known forces of machinery and known forms of force can be united in a practical (flying) machine...." Germ theory was first advanced in ancient Sanskrit texts thousands of years ago, but wasn't widely accepted until late in the 19th century. Space travel was declared "utter bilge" in 1956 by the British astronomer Royal, one of a long line of scientists who "proved" it was impossible. Throughout history, it has been difficult, even impossible, to promote the acceptance of new discoveries. Yet during the last two centuries, there has been a veritable explosion of new cures, theories, techniques, and inventions that have revolutionized aviation, space travel, communications, medicine, and warfare. Most of them, of course, were deemed "impossible." Science Was Wrong is a fascinating collection of stories about the pioneers who created or thought up the "impossible" cures, theories, and inventions "they" said couldn't work. How many have suffered or died because cures weren't accepted? How many inventions have been quashed? How much progress was delayed or denied? You will end up shaking your head in disbelief and even disgust as you learn the answers.

The Writer S Book Of Hope

In 1889, the editor of the San Francisco Examiner, having accepted an article from Rudyard Kipling, informed the author that he should not bother to submit any more. "This isn't a kindergarten for amateur writers," the editor wrote. "I'm sorry, Mr. Kipling, but you just don't know how to use the English language." A century later, John Grisham was turned down by sixteen agents before he found representation-and it was only after Hollywood showed an interest in The Firm that publishers began to take him seriously. The anxiety of rejection is an inevitable part of any writer's development. In this book, Ralph Keyes turns his attention from the difficulty of putting pen to paper-the subject of his acclaimed The Courage to Write -to the frustration of getting the product to the public. Inspiration isn't nearly as important to the successful writer, he argues, as tenacity, and he offers concrete ways to manage the struggle to publish. Drawing on his long experience as a writer and teacher of writing, Keyes provides new insight into the mind-set of publishers, the value of an agent, and the importance of encouragement and hope to the act of authorial creation.
