    Describes work carried out on the use of neural networks for time series prediction. The advantages of a neural approach are discussed, and some possible back propagation architectures described. Detailed evaluation is made of one particular architecture, based on a fully connected recurrent network. The network has been evaluated for both deterministically and stochastically generated time series... View full abstract»

    'Hype' has played a significant role in the history of artificial neural network research. Unsubstantiated promises are always detrimental to research. Unfortunately, they remain at the forefront of the subject area. It is the authors' contention that only through industrial application will the true prestige of the technology be realised. To this end, an international industrial Artificial Neural... View full abstract»

    Discusses different ways of improving UK and other EC member states legislation. Many people will be aware of the trend towards an increase in legislation in general, and in IT legislation in particular, both from Westminster, and more often from Brussels. The British Data Protection Act, the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act, not to mention the Software Directive, draft Data Protection Directive... View full abstract»

    One used to think of a business disaster as the inferno, tempest or flood that destroyed buildings, equipment and records vital to the running of a company. Of course, such disasters still happen, but an increasing number-indeed the majority-of disasters are less physical and more subtle. They include: system failure and data corruption caused by electromagnetic interference; loss of processing ca... View full abstract»

  • The Siberian approach for an open-system high-performance computing architecture

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):137 - 142
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (605 KB)

    Describes the 'Siberia' project, which is being developed at the Computing Centre of the Siberian Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences. This project has a pragmatic and a research objective. The pragmatic objective is the creation of a high-performance computer system (HCS) intended for the operation of the supercomputing centre for global simulation and large-scale computation. The researc... View full abstract»

  • Robotics in Japan: from east to west and outer space to inner space

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):143 - 148
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (573 KB)

    In Japan, robotics research utilises technology advancements and stimulates research in many areas. Present research aims to increase robot intelligence and reduce manipulator size, in some cases to almost molecular proportions. The authors present a picture of strategic planning, education, current results and future research in Japanese robotics.<> View full abstract»
