    Interactive computing is examined from a particular epistemological point of view which emphasises both the key split between subjective and objective forms of knowledge and the importance of feedback in learning and design. It is argued that the progressive and widespread introduction of intensely-supportive computer-based environments for design and for teaching and training is inevitable and th... View full abstract»

    The article, which is concerned mainly with the graduate workforce, is based on a presentation to the British-North American Committee (BNAC) Working Group on 'living and working issues'. It is intended to be of interest to BNAC members and a wider audience of employers and unions, offering recommendations for action and best practice. The author also hopes to stimulate discussion on issues such a... View full abstract»

  • Mobile robotics: moving away from the intellectual

    A brief review is given of the subsystems of the mobile robot TURNIP, developed at the Turing Institute. It is concluded that a brute force approach to real-time navigation for a robot such as TURNIP is better than 'intellectual methods' which require scene understanding, or recognition, prior to low-level path planning.<> View full abstract»

    Enthusiasm for neural computing seems, at present, to know no bounds. Neural networks are powerful pattern classifiers that are normally thought to require custom VLSI devices in order to obtain the advantages of their inherent parallelism. By exploiting N-tuple techniques, the real-time application of such networks is possible, using conventional computers, for such tasks as recognising and locat... View full abstract»

  • Detecting faults in fermentation processes

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):187 - 192

    Fermentation processes are involved in the production of pharmaceuticals (e.g. antibiotics), chemicals and bulk enzymes (e.g. citric acid, washing-powder enzymes), numerous foods and beverages, waste water treatment and in agriculture (e.g. silage). There are problems, particularly of process complexity and variability, that make fault detection and analysis in fermentation somewhat more difficult... View full abstract»

    Chinese technical education was severely curtailed during the cultural revolution, when senior professors often experienced great difficulties. However, ten years after the open-door policy was initiated, radical changes to computing and engineering curricula had been completed. The new computing curricula are modelled on ACM/IEEE recommendations, albeit set in a Chinese cultural environment and i... View full abstract»
