Guide to Biometrics
ISBN: 9780387400891 / Angielski / Twarda / 364 str. Starting with fingerprints more than a hundred years ago, there has been ongoing research in biometrics. Within the last forty years face and speaker recognition have emerged as research topics. However, as recently as a decade ago, biometrics itself did not exist as an independent field. Each of the biometricrelated topics grew out of different disciplines. For example, the study of fingerprints came from forensics and pattern recognition, speaker recognition evolved from signal processing, the beginnings of face recognition were in computer vision, and privacy concerns arose from the...

The Cyborg Handbook
ISBN: 9780415908498 / Angielski / Miękka / 568 str. Are you a cyborg? Is your neighbour? Do cyborgs live forever? These are only a few of the thoughtprovoking questions the authors address in The Cyborg Handbook. The cyborg  short for cybernetic organism  is an entity that mixes the mechanic and the organic, such as a creature that is part human and part machine. Today's technology is transforming and even transcending the human. People who have implanted pacemakers or attached prostheses are certainly cyborgs. Even the millions of people whose immune systems have been reprogrammed to resist disease can be considered cyborgs. Cyborgs are...

New Perspectives on Cybernetics: SelfOrganization, Autonomy and Connectionism
ISBN: 9780792315193 / Angielski / Twarda / 262 str. Gertrudis Van de Vijver. Seminar of Logic and Epistemology University of Ghent Before being classified under the fashionable denominators of complexity and chaos, selforganization and autonomy were intensely inquired into in the cybernetic tradition. Despite all rejections that cybernetics has gone through in the second half of this century, today its importance is more and more recognized. Its decisive influence for connectionist theories, autopoietic and constructivist theories, for different forms of applied or experimental epistemology, is being more and more understood and generally...

Fuzzy Decision Procedures with Binary Relations: Towards a Unified Theory
ISBN: 9780792323679 / Angielski / Twarda / 255 str. In decision theory there are basically two appr hes to the modeling of individual choice: one is based on an absolute representation of preferences leading to a ntDnerical expression of preference intensity. This is utility theory. Another approach is based on binary relations that encode pairwise preference. While the former has mainly blossomed in the AngloSaxon academic world, the latter is mostly advocated in continental Europe, including Russia. The advantage of the utility theory approach is that it integrates uncertainty about the state of nature, that may affect the consequences of...

Robustness in Statistical Pattern Recognition
ISBN: 9780792342670 / Angielski / Twarda / 302 str. This book is concerned with important problems of robust (stable) statistical pat tern recognition when hypothetical model assumptions about experimental data are violated (disturbed). Pattern recognition theory is the field of applied mathematics in which prin ciples and methods are constructed for classification and identification of objects, phenomena, processes, situations, and signals, i. e., of objects that can be specified by a finite set of features, or properties characterizing the objects (Mathematical Encyclopedia (1984)). Two stages in development of the mathematical theory of...

Control of nonlinear systems, one of the most active research areas in control theory, has always been a domain of natural convergence of research interests in applied mathematics and control engineering. The theory has developed from the early phase of its history, when the basic tool was essentially only the Lyapunov second method to the present day, where the mathematics ranges from differential geometry, calculus of variations, ordinary and partial differential equations, functional analysis, abstract algebra and stochastic processes; while the applications to advanced engineering design...

White Heat Cold Logic: British Computer Art 19601980
ISBN: 9780262026536 / Angielski / Twarda / 450 str. Technological optimism, even utopianism, was widespread at midcentury; in Britain, Harold Wilson in 1963 promised a new nation "forged from the white heat of the technological revolution." In this heady atmosphere, pioneering artists transformed the cold logic of computing into a new medium for their art, and played a central role in connecting technology and culture. White Heat Cold Logic tells the story of these early British digital and computer artists  and fills in a missing chapter in contemporary art history. In this heroic period of computer art, artists were...
