Das Buch stellt eine leicht uberarbeitete Fassung meiner Magisterarbeit dar, die ich im Fachbereich Philosophie und Wissenschsaftstheorie bei Prof. Dr. Dr. W. Hoering im Wintersemester 2005/06 und im Sommersemester 2006 geschrieben habe. Es gibt erstmals einen umfassenden Uberblick uber die Debatte zwischen der klassichen Symboltheorie i.S. J.A. Fodor's, Z.W. Pylyshyn's und Br. McLaughlin's und dem bedeutensten Vertreter des konnektionistischen Programms in der kunstlichen Intelligenz, Paul Smolensky, der mit seinem sog. Subsymbolischen Paradigma" den Anspruch erhebt, eine alternative und integrative Theorie der Kognition vorzulegen, indem die Theorie der kunstlichen Neuronalen Netzwerke auf die Kognitionswissenschaft angewendet wird. Die Debatte behandelt dabei das Problem der modelltechnischen Realisation von Information, m.a.W. die Beantwortung der Frage: Wie funktioniert die intelligente Informationsverarbeitung des Menschen? Wahrend in der sog. symbolorientierten Klassischen Kunstlichen Intelligenz," dem Symbolismus, interne mentale Reprasentationen als syntaktisch strukturierte Symbole betrachtet werden, wird in der sog. subsymbolorientierten Kunstlichen Intelligenz," dem Konnektionismus, der Begriff der Reprasentation" auf dynamische Vektor- und Tensorkonstruktionen aus der Theorie der Kunstlichen Neuronalen Netzwerke angewendet, sodass man versuchen kann kognitive Funktionen wie Produktivitat, Systematizitat, Kompositionalitat und logische Inferenz auf der Basis einer sog. vektoriellen Form" zu erklaren, d.h. gegrundet im Dynamischen System- und Selbstorganisations-Paradigma."

This volume contains papers selected for presentation at the Silver Jubilee 25th Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science | MFCS 2000, held in Bratislava, Slovakia, August 28 { September 1, 2000. MFCS 2000 was organized under the auspices of the Minister of Education of the Slovak Republic, Milan Ft a cnik, by the Slovak Society for Computer Science, and the Comenius University in Bratislava, in cooperation with other institu- ons in Slovakia. It was supported by the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science, the European Research Consortium for Informatics and - thematics, and the Slovak Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathe- tics. The series of MFCS symposia, organized alternately in the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovakia since 1972, has a well-established tradition. The MFCS symposia encourage high-quality research in all branches of theoretical computer science. Their broad scope provides an opportunity of bringing together spec- lists who do not usually meet at specialized conferences. The previous meetings took place in Jablonna, 1972; Strbsk e Pleso, 1973; Jadwisin, 1974; Mari ansk e L azn e, 1975; Gdansk, 1976; Tatransk a Lomnica, 1977; Zakopane, 1978; Olomouc, 1979; Rydzina, 1980; Strbsk e Pleso, 1981; Prague, 1984; Bratislava, 1986; C- lsbad, 1988; Porabk a-Kozubnik, 1989; Bansk a Bystrica, 1990; Kazimierz Dolny, 1991; Prague, 1992; Gdansk, 1993, Ko sice, 1994; Prague, 1995; Krak ow, 1996; Bratislava, 1997; Brno, 1998; and Szklarska Poreba, 1999.

Experimental algorithmics, as its name indicates, combines algorithmic work and experimentation: algorithms are not just designed, but also implemented and tested on a variety of instances. Perhaps the most important lesson in this process is that designing an algorithm is but the first step in the process of developing robust and efficient software for applications. Based on a seminar held at Dagstuhl Castle, Germany in September 2000, this state-of-the-art survey presents a coherent survey of the work done in the area so far. The 11 carefully reviewed chapters provide complete coverage of all current topics in experimental algorithmics.

Linear Algebra and Probability for Computer Science Applications


Author: Ernest Davis

Publisher: CRC Press

ISBN: 1466501553

Category: Mathematics

Page: 431

View: 2800

Based on the author’s course at NYU, Linear Algebra and Probability for Computer Science Applications gives an introduction to two mathematical fields that are fundamental in many areas of computer science. The course and the text are addressed to students with a very weak mathematical background. Most of the chapters discuss relevant MATLAB® functions and features and give sample assignments in MATLAB; the author’s website provides the MATLAB code from the book. After an introductory chapter on MATLAB, the text is divided into two sections. The section on linear algebra gives an introduction to the theory of vectors, matrices, and linear transformations over the reals. It includes an extensive discussion on Gaussian elimination, geometric applications, and change of basis. It also introduces the issues of numerical stability and round-off error, the discrete Fourier transform, and singular value decomposition. The section on probability presents an introduction to the basic theory of probability and numerical random variables; later chapters discuss Markov models, Monte Carlo methods, information theory, and basic statistical techniques. The focus throughout is on topics and examples that are particularly relevant to computer science applications; for example, there is an extensive discussion on the use of hidden Markov models for tagging text and a discussion of the Zipf (inverse power law) distribution. Examples and Programming Assignments The examples and programming assignments focus on computer science applications. The applications covered are drawn from a range of computer science areas, including computer graphics, computer vision, robotics, natural language processing, web search, machine learning, statistical analysis, game playing, graph theory, scientific computing, decision theory, coding, cryptography, network analysis, data compression, and signal processing. Homework Problems Comprehensive problem sections include traditional calculation exercises, thought problems such as proofs, and programming assignments that involve creating MATLAB functions.

The papers comprising Vol. I and Vol. II were prepared for and presented at the International Conference on Information Networking 2002 (ICOIN 2002), which was held from January 30 to February 1, 2002 at Cheju Island, Korea. It was organized by the KISS (Korean Information Science Society) SIGIN in Korea, IPSJ SIG DPE (Distributed Processing Systems) in Japan, the ITRI (Industrial Technology Research Institute), and National Taiwan University in Taiwan. The papers were selected through two steps, refereeing and presentation review. We selected for the theme of the conference the motto “One World of Information Networking”. We did this because we believe that networking will transform the world into one zone, in spite of different ages, countries and societies. Networking is in the main stream of everyday life and affects directly millions of people around the world. We are in an era of tremendous excitement for professionals working in many aspects of the converging networking, information retailing, entertainment, and publishing companies. Ubiquitous communication and computing technologies are changing the world. Online communities, e commerce, e service, and distance learning are a few of the consequences of these technologies, and advanced networking will develop new applications and technologies with global impact. The goal is the creation of a world wide distributed computing system that connects people and appliances through wireless and high bandwidth wired channels with a backbone of computers that serve as databases and object servers. Thus, Vol.
