This update of the 1981 classic on neural networks includes new commentaries by the authors that show how the original ideas are related to subsequent developments. As researchers continue to uncover ways of applying the complex information processing abilities of neural networks, they give these models an exciting future which may well involve revolutionary developments in understanding the brain and the mind -- developments that may allow researchers to build adaptive intelligent machines. The original chapters show where the ideas came from and the new commentaries show where they are going.


"This is the book which launched the 'neural network' paradigm in AI and cognitive psychology. It still serves well as an introduction into this field. It provides a very readable review of its history and basic ideas, as well as articles on pioneering work by Anderson, Feldman, Geman, Hinton, Kohonen, Sejnowski, Willshaw, and others."
