Human Accomplishment: The Pursuit of Excellence in the Arts and Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950
Human Accomplishment: The Pursuit of Excellence in the Arts and Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950
A sweeping cultural survey reminiscent of Barzun's From Dawn to Decadence.

"At irregular times and in scattered settings, human beings have achieved great things. Human Accomplishment is about those great things, falling in the domains known as the arts and sciences, and the people who did them.'

So begins...

The Design and Analysis of Efficient Learning Algorithms (ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award)
The Design and Analysis of Efficient Learning Algorithms (ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award)

Approaches to building machines that can learn from experience abound - from connectionist learning algorithms and genetic algorithms to statistical mechanics and a learning system based on Piaget's theories of early childhood development. This monograph describes results derived from the mathematically oriented framework of computational...
