For public and college libraries, developing a well-rounded, balanced, and broadly Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 accessible collection of books, periodicals, DVDs, and web sites on this highly technical and academic subject can be challenging. The following bibliography provides a general listing of recent titles, mostly nonmedical Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40, that demonstrate neuroscience's breadth. ...

Searching for God in the Brain - Researchers are unearthing the roots of religious feeling in the neural commotion that accompanies the spiritual epiphanies of nuns, Buddhists and other people of Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 faith. By David Biello. Scientific American Mind (October 2007). "The spiritual quest may be as old as humankind itself, but now there is a new place to look: inside our heads. Using fMRI Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 and other tools of modern neuroscience, researchers are attempting to pin down what happens in the brain when people experience mystical awakenings during prayer and meditation or during spontaneous utterances inspired by religious Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 fervor. Such efforts to reveal the neural correlates of the divine -- a new discipline with the warring titles 'neurotheology' and 'spiritual neuroscience' -- not only might reconcile religion and science but also might Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 help point to ways of eliciting pleasurable otherworldly feelings in people who do not have them or who cannot summon them at will. ... The brain mediates every human experience from breathing Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 to contemplating the existence of God. And whereas activity in neural networks is what gives rise to these experiences, neuroimaging cannot yet pinpoint such activity at the level of individual neurons. Instead it Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 provides far cruder anatomical information, highlighting the broad swaths of brain tissue that appear to be unusually dynamic or dormant. But using such vague structural clues to explain human feelings and behaviors Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 may be a fool's errand."

October 1, 2007: Ryszard Michalski; Shaped How Machines Learn. By Matt Schudel. The Washington Post (page B06). "Ryszard S. Michalski, a George Mason University Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 professor whose research helped shape the field of machine learning, bringing computers closer to the realm of human thought, died Sept. 20 of cancer at his home in Fairfax County. He was 70. While working in Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 his native Poland in the 1960s, Dr. Michalski devised an early computer system that could recognize handwriting. After coming to the United States in 1970, he expanded the field of machine learning Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40, creating applications in which computers could execute a form of reasoning, drawing conclusions from information supplied to them. ... Dr. Michalski's specialty of machine learning is similar to but distinct from artificial Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 intelligence. The underlying purpose of mu ch of his work was to use computers to recognize patterns that could ease the decision-making process in seemingly unrelated systems. His research has Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 been applied to agriculture, medicine, the stock market, fraud protection and voice recognition systems, among other things. ... For many years, Dr. Michalski directed GMU's Machine Learning and Inference Laboratory. He Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 was a co-author of a multivolume textbook, "Machine Learning: An Artificial Intelligence Approach," and was a co-author or editor of more than 15 other books. He wrote more than 500 technical papers. He was a Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 co-founder of Machine Learning journal and lectured around the world."


University Mourns Death of Prof. Michalski. The Mason Gazette (September 26, 2007). "Ryszard Michalski, PRC Professor of Computational Sciences and Health Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 Informatics , died from cancer on Sept. 20, Provost Peter Stearns announced Tuesday. He joined the Mason faculty in 1988. ... Michalski was a pioneer and cofounder of the field of machine learning. To recognize his efforts Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 to foster collaboration between Polish and American scientists, the president of Poland honored him with the Officer's Cross of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland in July. ... He cofounded Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 the Journal of Machine Learning and helped organize the first international machine learning conferences."

Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40 impact the human quality of life, noting that after completing his undergraduate study at Princeton, the shift to MIT was something of a shock. 'I got the feeling that MIT students don Elektronisk Dansk A. I. Meddelser 108 Feb 08 - 40't really give a damn about the world,' Mr. Moss said of his graduate school experience. 'But they've managed to change their stripes and really care about social issues.' ... 'I really believe that Elektronisk Dansk A. I.
