The papers gathered in this book were published over a period of more than twenty years in widely scattered journals. They led to the discovery of randomness in arithmetic which was presented in the recently published monograph on "Algorithmic Information Theory" by the author. There the strongest possible version of Goedel's incompleteness theorem, using an information-theoretic approach based on the size of computer programs, was discussed. The present book is intended as a companion volume to the monograph and it will serve as a stimulus for work on complexity, randomness and unpredictability, in physics and biology as well as in metamathematics.
Information, Randomness & Incompleteness: Papers On Algorithmic Information Theory Paperback edition by Gregory J. Chaitin
This book presents neural networks from a theoretical viewpoint with practical applications. Unlike other books, which focus on a single architecture or view neural networks primarily through a machine learning prism, this book provides a comprehensive view of neural networks from its roots in neuroscience to recent work on both connectivity theory and statistical classification theory....
Graph theoretic problems are representative of fundamental kernels in traditional and emerging scientific applications, such as complex network analysis, data mining, and computational biology, as well as applications in national security. Graph abstractions are also extensively used to understand and solve challenging problems in scientific computing. Real-world systems, such as the Internet,...
This volume covers a spectrum of wearable sensing techniques and their applications in m-Health. It includes design methodologies of wearable sensors and systems that are end-to-end integrated and connected into worn items such as intelligent textile cloth.
Posthumanism questions the self-evident status of human beings by exploring how technology is changing what can be categorised as ?human', e.g. cyborgs and humanoid robots. In this book, the author applies a posthumanist lens to traditional learning theory, challenging conventional understanding of what a human learner can actually be. Posthuman Learning presents a new, inclusive, posthuman...
Looks at the state of knowledge in the American public, and demonstrates how many areas of knowledge correlate with quality of life, politics, and behavior, arguing that being knowledgeable has significant value even when facts can be looked up with little effort.

Now in paperback: one of the world's greatest mathematicians explains his revolutionary hypothesis about the enigma at the heart of maths: omega (?). 'Chaitin comes across as a kind of mathematical Richard Feynman, intuitive and high-spirited, irreverent and plain-spoken.' Peter Pesic, TLS
The author of Meta Math! explains how evolution works on a mathematical level, arguing that mathematical theory is an essential part of evolution while highlighting mathematical principles in the biological world. 25,000 first printing.
It is recognized that knowledge acquisition is the critical bottleneck of knowledge engineering. This book presents three major approaches of current research in this field, namely the psychological approach, the artificial intelligence approach and the software engineering approach.
This book contains 15 reviewed papers selected from among those presented at the 4th Vision Interface Conference in Halifax, Canada 14 - 18 May 1990. The papers are grouped into three sections which deal with parallel architectures and neural networks, algorithms for analysis and processing, and systems and applications.
This book describes a study on the question of what sort of innate knowledge it is that enables children to acquire a first language. The author, using a computational approach, builds a model, named BUD (Bring Up a Daughter), on the basis of the data linguists and psychologists have collected.BUD is based on the empirists, view of first language acquisition (as opposed to that of the nativists'),...
Pictorial representations are very useful for humans to understand complicated relations or structures. This is the reason that the user interface of information systems is strongly required to visualize many kinds of information in a wide variety of graphical forms. At present, however, only some very specialized visualization techniques have been developed probably because the generality in the...
This essential companion to Chaitins highly successful The Limits of Mathematics, gives a brilliant historical survey of important work on the foundations of mathematics. The Unknowable is a very readable introduction to Chaitins ideas, and includes software (on the authors website) that will enable users to interact with the authors proofs.
This book considers computer vision to be an integral part of the artificial intelligence system. The core of the book is an analysis of possible approaches to the creation of artificial vision systems, which simulate human visual perception. Much attention is paid to the latest achievements in visual psychology and physiology, the description of the functional and structural organization of the...
This text contains original reviews in the field of mathematical linguistics and formal language theory. Topics covered include: contextual grammars; grammar systems; automata theory; the algebraic approach to computer science; cryptography; grammatical inference; and natural language processing.
