A digital architecture for support vector machines: theory, algorithm, and fpga implementation

D. Anguita, A. Boni, S. Ridella
2003 IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks  
The algorithm is composed of two parts: the first one exploits a recurrent network for finding the parameters of the SVM; the second one uses a bisection process for computing the threshold.  ...  In this paper, we propose a digital architecture for support vector machine (SVM) learning and discuss its implementation on a field programmable gate array (FPGA).  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors wish to thank two anonymous reviewers for helping to improve both the structure and the content of the paper and pointing out some imprecision in the first draft of this work  ...

Connectionism: past, present, and future

J. B. Pollack
1989 Artificial Intelligence Review  
Hebb set out to rectify this situation, by developing a physiologically-motivated theory of psychology.  ...  Of his own work he said: The theory is evidently a form of connectionism, one of the switchboard variety, though it does not deal in direct connections between afferent and efferent pathways: not an "S-R  ...  Then I imagined that one of my competitors, Professor Challenger, was about to solve the same problem.  ...

Neural networks for decision support:

Shimon Schocken, Gad Ariav
1994 Decision Support Systems  
In this paper, we analyze the potential contribution of neural networks for decision support, on one hand, and point out at some inherent constraints that might inhibit their use, on the other.  ...  For the sake of completeness and organization, the analysis is carried out in the context of a general-purpose DSS framework that examines all the key factors that come into play in the design of any decision  ...  An exception to this statement is the novel use of Hopfield networks in solving hard combinatorial problems (such as integer programming) [32] [36] .  ...

The Biointelligence Explosion [chapter]

David Pearce
2012 The Frontiers Collection  
Only a handful of genes separate Homo sapiens from our hominid ancestors on the African savannah.  ...  In the new reproductive era, hedonic set-points and intelligence alike will be ratcheted upwards in virtue of selection pressure.  ...  Any ecologically valid intelligence test designed for a species of social animal must incorporate social cognition and the capacity for co-operative problem-solving.  ...

A Survey of Artificial Cognitive Systems: Implications for the Autonomous Development of Mental Capabilities in Computational Agents

David Vernon, Giorgio Metta, Giulio Sandini
2007 IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation

Neural blackboard architectures of combinatorial structures in cognition

Frank van der Velde, Marc de Kamps
2006 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
In his recent book on the foundations of language, Jackendoff described four fundamental problems for a neural instantiation of combinatorial structures: the massiveness of the binding problem, the problem  ...  This paper aims to show that these problems can be solved by means of neural "blackboard" architectures. For this purpose, a neural blackboard architecture for sentence structure is presented.  ...  In any lifetime, one can form only a minute set of conjunctive representations for this set (of the order of one sentence for every 10 10 sentences or more).  ...
