The Computer and the Brain (The Silliman Memorial Lectures Series)

With a foreword by Paul M. Churchland and Patricia S. ChurchlandThis book represents the views of one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century on the analogies between computing machines and the living human brain. John von Neumann concludes that the brain operates in part digitally, in part analogically, but uses a peculiar statistical language unlike that employed in the operation of man-made computers. This edition includes a new foreword by two eminent figures in the fields of philosophy, neuroscience, and consciousness.

Software Testing and Analysis: Process, Principles and Techniques
The first comprehensive book on software test and analysis

You can't “test quality into” a software product, but neither can you build a quality software product without test and analysis.  Software test and analysis is increasingly recognized, in research and in industrial practice, as a core challenge in...

Multi-Sensor Image Fusion and Its Applications (Signal Processing and Communica)
Multi-Sensor Image Fusion and Its Applications (Signal Processing and Communica)
Imaging sensors are an important resource in today’s world. Further, a single sensor cannot provide a complete view of the environment in many applications. Just as humans use all five senses to great advantage, computers use image fusion algorithms to gain similar advantages. The resulting fused image, if suitably obtained from a set of...
