This important volume introduces you to the new wave of applied intelligent systems that are able to deal with the complex, fuzzy, noisy, and highly varying problems found today in everything from manufacturing to intelligent database tasks. The sixth generation advanced hardware and software solutions in this innovative, groundbreaking work open up new vistas in computing: processing and reasoning by associations. You'll find major breakthroughs in machine cognition--speed-up factors of 10 to 100, compared to other learning paradigms, are achievable novel solutions to the enfolding of very large sets of fuzzy associations using holographic neural technology, including a novel information representation solution employing a vector orientation on a Riemann plane a description of neural-fuzzy hybrids, a new class of associative systems and cellular processors a full spectrum of techniques and algorithms to vastly enhance performance in such key computer processes as scientific and technical data processing...natural language generation and cognition...fuzzy processing in reasoning...decision-making robotics and process control...computer vision and graphics...and pattern identification and recognition. Computer engineers, software designers, managers, and students will find a range of newly developed intelligent modules, systems, and methods never before gathered under one cover--plus previously unpublished work from the renowned international IRIS (Integration of Reasoning, Informing and Serving) Group. Fuzzy, Holographic and Parallel Intelligence is the sixth-generation breakthrough.
