    A philosophical view is given of artificial intelligence. The article examines: the behaviorist model; symbolic AI; intelligence and evolution; and cognition. It is concluded that the common framework for AI will have to come from brain architecture. Abstracting relevant principles remains extremely difficult until we really understand the interplay between the sensing level and the highest levels of cognition. View full abstract»

  • Accuracy counts in modeling TCAD's future

    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (136 KB)  

    We are on the path to meet the major challenges ahead for TCAD. The emerging computational grid will ultimately solve the challenge of limited computational power. The Modular TCAD Framework will solve the TCAD software challenge once more developers agree to cooperate. This framework also provides the ideal platform for rapid implementation of the many models needed in a partial differential equation solver View full abstract»

  • The PC/video connection

    The personal computer (PC) is an integral part of our life. Television (TV) and PCs have a common origin in electronic technology. With respect to pictures and sound, TVs are an analog technology; PCs are digital. The analog video signal can be converted to digital information for storage in the computer memory or displayed on the computer monitor. An example of advancing technology is the video conferencing industry (remote conferencing). It is becoming an alternative to expensive and time-consuming air travel. The video and audio are transmitted using complex equipment, and expensive and relatively scarce high bandwidth satellite channels. Combined, video and computing can take technology even further, for instance into the operating room. Video can be used with a computer for teleconferencing the surgery. This would be especially beneficial in the area such as laparoscopy. A video used with the computer provides two distinct advantages. The ability to interact with a remote viewer (e.g. teleconferencing an operation), and the improved instructional value. We consider the state-of-the-art technology that video and computing can create and use. To do this, each aspect of each technology is reviewed View full abstract»

  • Posters vs. lectures [student presentations]

    Page(s): 33 - 36

    Many professional societies have featured poster sessions successfully in meetings and conferences for many years. Frequently, student presentations, when featured at professional technical meetings, are in the form of posters. Some authors are reluctant to select poster sessions as their first choice of presentation method. They are unfamiliar with the format and have not been efficiently exposed to poster papers. So how do poster presentations compare to lecture presentations? Because of their temporal nature, lecture sessions run strictly according to the clock. In contrast, poster sessions are allocated a large overall time slot. This permits considerably more informal discussion, such as questions and answers, than a lecture session would allow. The major differences between the lectures and posters are discussed. The author then gives information and recommendations on preparing for a poster session. In particular advice is given on how to make sure that the poster is effective in terms of graphic impact. Poster-construction examples are also given View full abstract»
