 Summary

Building a person has been an elusive goal in artificial intelligence. This failure, John Pollock argues, is because the problems involved are essentially philosophical; what is needed for the construction of a person is a physical system that mimics human rationality. Pollock describes an exciting theory of rationality and its partial implementation in OSCAR, a computer system whose descendants will literally be persons.In developing the philosophical superstructure for this bold undertaking, Pollock defends the conception of man as an intelligent machine and argues that mental states are physical states and persons are physical objects as described in the fable of Oscar, the self conscious machine.Pollock brings a unique blend of philosophy and artificial intelligence to bear on the vexing problem of how to construct a physical system that thinks, is self conscious, has desires, fears, intentions, and a full range of mental states. He brings together an impressive array of technical work in philosophy to drive theory construction in AI. The result is described in his final chapter on "cognitive carpentry." John Pollock is Professor of Philosophy and Cognitive Science at the University of Arizona. A Bradford Book.

For centuries, people have been fascinated by the possibility of building an artificial system that behaves intelligently. From Mary Shelley's Frankenstein monster to the computer intelligence of HAL in 2001, scientists have been cast in the role of creator of such devices. Now there is a new entry into this arena, neural networks, and "Naturally Intelligent Systems explores these systems to see how they work and what they can do. Neural networks are not computers in any traditional sense, and they have little in common with earlier approaches to the problem of fabricating intelligent behavior. Instead, they are information processing systems that are physically modeled after the structure of the brain and that are "trained to perform a task rather than programmed like a computer. Neural networks, in fact, provide a tool with problemsolving capabilities  and limitations  strikingly similar to those of animals and people. In particular, they are successful in applications such as speech, vision, robotics, and pattern recognition. "Naturally Intelligent Systems offers a comprehensive introduction to these exciting systems. It provides a technically accurate, yet downtoearth discussion of neural networks. No particular mathematical background is necessary; it is written for all interested readers. "Naturally Intelligent Systents clearly explains the underlying concepts of key neural network designs, how they are trained, and why they work. It compares their behavior to the natural intelligence found in animals  and people. Throughout, Caudill and Butler bring the field into focus by presenting actual applications that illustrate neural networks' utility in the real world. MaureenCaudill is President of Adaptics, a neural network consulting company in San Diego and author of the popular "Neural Network Primer" articles that appear regularly in "AI Expert.

Like Mooki, the hero of Spike Lee's film "Do the Right Thing" artificially, intelligent systems have a hard time knowing what to do in all circumstances. Classical theories of perfect rationality prescribe the "right thing" for any occasion, but no finite agent can compute their prescriptions fast enough. In "Do the Right Thing", the authors argue that a new theoretical foundation for artificial intelligence can be constructed in which rationality is a property of "programs" within a finite architecture, and their behaviour over time in the task environment, rather than a property of individual decisions. "Do The Right Thing" suggests that the rich structure that seems to be exhibited by humans, and ought to be exhibited by AI systems, is a necessary result of the pressure for optimal behaviour operating within a system of strictly limited resources. It provides an outline for the design of new intelligent systems and describes theoretical and practical tools for bringing about intelligent behaviour in finite machines. The tools are applied to game planning and realtime problem solving, with surprising results.

There is increasing interest in genetic programming by both researchers and professional software developers. These twentytwo invited contributions show how a wide variety of problems across disciplines can be solved using this new paradigm. Advances in Genetic Programming reports significant results in improving the power of genetic programming, presenting techniques that can be employed immediately in the solution of complex problems in many areas, including machine learning and the simulation of autonomous behavior. Popular languages such as C and C++ are used in many of the applications and experiments, illustrating how genetic programming is not restricted to symbolic computing languages such as LISP. Researchers interested in getting started in genetic programming will find information on how to begin, on what public domain code is available, and on how to become part of the active genetic programming community via electronic mail. A major focus of the book is on improving the power of genetic programming. Experimental results are presented in a variety of areas, including adding memory to genetic programming, using locality and "demes" to maintain evolutionary diversity, avoiding the traps of local optima by using coevolution, using noise to increase generality, and limiting the size of evolved solutions to improve generality. Significant theoretical results in the understanding of the processes underlying genetic programming are presented, as are several results in the area of automatic function definition. Performance increases are demonstrated by directly evolving machine code, and implementation and design issues for genetic programming in C++ are discussed.

Neural networks usually work adequately on small problems but can run into trouble when they are scaled up to problems involving large amounts of input data. Circuit Complexity and Neural Networks addresses the important question of how well neural networks scale  that is, how fast the computation time and number of neurons grow as the problem size increases. It surveys recent research in circuit complexity (a robust branch of theoretical computer science) and applies this work to a theoretical understanding of the problem of scalability.

In cognitive science, artificial intelligence, psychology, and education, a growing body of research supports the view that the learning process is strongly influenced by the learner's goals. The fundamental tenet of goaldriven learning is that learning is largely an active and strategic process in which the learner, human or machine, attempts to identify and satisfy its information needs in the context of its tasks and goals, its prior knowledge, its capabilities, and environmental opportunities for learning. This book brings together a diversity of research on goaldriven learning to establish a broad, interdisciplinary framework that describes the goaldriven learning process. It collects and solidifies existing results on this important issue in machine and human learning and presents a theoretical framework for future investigations.

Within artificial intelligence, the need to create sophisticated, intelligent behaviour based on commonsense reasoning has long been recognized. Research has demonstrated that formalism for dealing with common sense reasoning require nonmonotonic capabilities where, typically, inferences based on incomplete knowledge need to be revised in light of later information which fills in some of the gaps.

The research described in this book is based on the premise that human analogymaking is an extension of our constant background process of perceivingin other words, that analogymaking and the perception of sameness are two sides of the same coin. Foreword by Daniel Dennett While it is fashionable today to dismiss the "bad old days" of artificial intelligence and rave about emergent selforganizing systems, Robert French has created a model of human analogymaking that attempts to bridge the gap between classical topdown AI and more recent bottomup approaches. The research described in this book is based on the premise that human analogymaking is an extension of our constant background process of perceivingin other words, that analogymaking and the perception of sameness are two sides of the same coin. At the heart of the author's theory and computer model of analogymaking is the idea that the buildingup and the manipulation of representations are inseparable aspects of mental functioning, in contrast to traditional AI models of highlevel cognitive processes, which have almost always depended on a clean separation. A computer program called Tabletop forms analogies in a microdomain consisting of everyday objects on a table set for a meal. The theory and the program rely on the idea that myriad stochastic choices made on the microlevel can add up to statistical robustness on a macrolevel. To illustrate this, French includes the results of thousands of runs of his program on several dozen interrelated analogy problems in the Tabletop microworld. French's work is exciting not only because it reveals analogymaking to be an extension of our complex and subtle ability to perceive sameness but also because it offers a computational model of mechanisms underlying these processes. This model makes significant strides in putting into practice microlevel stochastic processing, distributed processing, simulated parallelism, and the integration of representationbuilding and representationprocessing.

 PART I: A COMPARISON OF EVOLUTIONARY ALGORITHMS
 PART II: EXTENDING GENETIC ALGORITHMS.
 (source: Nielsen Book Data)
(source: Nielsen Book Data)
This book compares the three most prominent representatives of evolutionary algorithms  genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, and evolutionary programming  computational methods at the border between computer science and evolutionary biology. The algorithms are explained within a common formal framework, thereby clarifying the similarities and differences of these methods. The author also presents new results regarding the role of mutation and selection in genetic algorithms and uses a metaevolutionary approach to confirm some of the theoretical results.

Neural networks and fuzzy systems are different aprpoaches to introducing humanlike reasoning into expert systems. This text combines the study of these two subjects, their basics and their use, along with symbolic AI methods to build comprehensive artificial intelligence systems. Kasabov describes rulebased and connectionist techniques and then their combinations, with fuzzy logic included, showing the application of the different techniques to a set of simple prototype problems, which makes comparisons possible. A particular feature of the text is that it is filled with applications in engineering, business and finance. AI problems that cover most of the applicationoriented research in the field (pattern recognition, speech and image processing, classification, planning, optimization, prediction, control, decision making, and game simulations) are discussed and illustrated with concrete examples. Intended both as a text for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as a reference for researchers in the field of knowledge engineering, "Foundations of Neural Networks, Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Engineering" has chapters structured for various levels of teaching and includes work by the author along with the classic material. Data sets for the examples in the book as well as an integrated software environment that can be used to solve the problems and do the exercises at the end of each chapter are available free through anonymous ftp.

Genetic programming is a form of evolutionary computation that evolves programs and programlike executable structures for developing reliable time  and costeffective applications. It does this by breeding programs over many generations, using the principles of natural selection, sexual recombination, and mutuation. This third volume of "Advances in Genetic Programming" highlights many of the recent technical advances in this increasingly popular field.

Evolutionary theory says that the brain has evolved not to do mathematical proofs but to control behaviour and ensure survival. Researchers agree that intelligence always manifests itself in behaviour  thus it is behaviour that must be understood. A new field has grown around the study of behaviourbased intelligence, also known as embodied cognitive science, "new AI" and "behaviourbased AI". This book provides a systematic introduction to this new way of thinking. After discussing concepts and approaches such as subsumption architecture, Braitenberg vehicles, evolutionary robotics, artificial life, selforganization and learning, the authors derive a set of principles and a framework for the study of naturally and artificially intelligent systems, or autonomous agents. This framework is based on a synthetic methodology whose goal is understanding by designing and building. The text includes the background material required to understand the principles underlying intelligence, as well as information of intelligent robotics and simulated agents so readers can begin experiments and projects on their own. The reader is guided through a series of case studies that illustrate the design principles of embodied cognitive science.

The book provides an overview of recent developments in large margin classifiers, examines connections with other methods (e.g., Bayesian inference), and identifies strengths and weaknesses of the method, as well as directions for future research. The concept of large margins is a unifying principle for the analysis of many different approaches to the classification of data from examples, including boosting, mathematical programming, neural networks, and support vector machines. The fact that it is the margin, or confidence level, of a classificationthat is, a scale parameterrather than a raw training error that matters has become a key tool for dealing with classifiers. This book shows how this idea applies to both the theoretical analysis and the design of algorithms. The book provides an overview of recent developments in large margin classifiers, examines connections with other methods (e.g., Bayesian inference), and identifies strengths and weaknesses of the method, as well as directions for future research. Among the contributors are Manfred Opper, Vladimir Vapnik, and Grace Wahba.

 Summary

The book includes all the background material required to understand the principles underlying intelligence, as well as enough detailed information on intelligent robotics and simulated agents so readers can begin experiments and projects on their own. By the mid1980s researchers from artificial intelligence, computer science, brain and cognitive science, and psychology realized that the idea of computers as intelligent machines was inappropriate. The brain does not run "programs"; it does something entirely different. But what? Evolutionary theory says that the brain has evolved not to do mathematical proofs but to control our behavior, to ensure our survival. Researchers now agree that intelligence always manifests itself in behaviorthus it is behavior that we must understand. An exciting new field has grown around the study of behaviorbased intelligence, also known as embodied cognitive science, "new AI, " and "behaviorbased AI." This book provides a systematic introduction to this new way of thinking. After discussing concepts and approaches such as subsumption architecture, Braitenberg vehicles, evolutionary robotics, artificial life, selforganization, and learning, the authors derive a set of principles and a coherent framework for the study of naturally and artificially intelligent systems, or autonomous agents. This framework is based on a synthetic methodology whose goal is understanding by designing and building. The book includes all the background material required to understand the principles underlying intelligence, as well as enough detailed information on intelligent robotics and simulated agents so readers can begin experiments and projects on their own. The reader is guided through a series of case studies that illustrate the design principles of embodied cognitive science.

 Summary

The annual conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) is the flagship conference on neural computation. The conference is interdisciplinary, with contributions in algorithms, learning theory, cognitive science, neuroscience, vision, speech and signal processing, reinforcement learning and control, implementations, and diverse applications. Only about 30 percent of the papers submitted are accepted for presentation at NIPS, so the quality is exceptionally high. These proceedings contain all of the papers that were presented at the 2001 conference.

 Summary

An overview of the theory and application of kernel classification methods. Linear classifiers in kernel spaces have emerged as a major topic within the field of machine learning. The kernel technique takes the linear classifiera limited, but wellestablished and comprehensively studied modeland extends its applicability to a wide range of nonlinear patternrecognition tasks such as natural language processing, machine vision, and biological sequence analysis. This book provides the first comprehensive overview of both the theory and algorithms of kernel classifiers, including the most recent developments. It begins by describing the major algorithmic advances: kernel perceptron learning, kernel Fisher discriminants, support vector machines, relevance vector machines, Gaussian processes, and Bayes point machines. Then follows a detailed introduction to learning theory, including VC and PACBayesian theory, datadependent structural risk minimization, and compression bounds. Throughout, the book emphasizes the interaction between theory and algorithms: how learning algorithms work and why. The book includes many examples, complete pseudo code of the algorithms presented, and an extensive source code library.

99. Least squares support vector machines [2002]
 River Edge, NJ : World Scientific, 2002.
 Description
 Book — 1 online resource (xiv, 294 pages) : illustrations
 Summary

Annotation. This book focuses on Least Squares Support Vector Machines (LSSVMs) which are reformulations to standard SVMs. LSSVMs are closely related to regularization networks and Gaussian processes but additionally emphasize and exploit primaldual interpretations from optimization theory. The authors explain the natural links between LSSVM classifiers and kernel Fisher discriminant analysis. Bayesian inference of LSSVM models is discussed, together with methods for imposing spareness and employing robust statistics. The framework is further extended towards unsupervised learning by considering PCA analysis and its kernel version as a oneclass modelling problem. This leads to new primaldual support vector machine formulations for kernel PCA and kernel CCA analysis. Furthermore, LSSVM formulations are given for recurrent networks and control. In general, support vector machines may pose heavy computational challenges for large data sets. For this purpose, a method of fixed size LSSVM is proposed where the estimation is done in the primal space in relation to a Nystrom sampling with active selection of support vectors. The methods are illustrated with several examples.
