Street-Fighting Mathematics: The Art of Educated Guessing and Opportunistic Problem Solving (The MIT Press)
Street-Fighting Mathematics: The Art of Educated Guessing and Opportunistic Problem Solving (The MIT Press)
Too much mathematical rigor teaches rigor mortis: the fear of making an unjustified leap even when it lands on a correct result. Instead of paralysis, have courage—shoot first and ask questions later. Although unwise as public policy, it is a valuable problem-solving philosophy, and it is the theme of this book: how to...
The Coming Generational Storm: What You Need to Know about America's Economic Future
The Coming Generational Storm: What You Need to Know about America's Economic Future
In 2030, as 77 million baby boomers hobble into old age, walkers will outnumber strollers; there will be twice as many retirees as there are today but only 18 percent more workers. How will America handle this demographic overload? How will Social Security and Medicare function with fewer working taxpayers to support these programs? According to...
Financial Structure and Economic Growth: A Cross-Country Comparison of Banks, Markets, and Development
Financial Structure and Economic Growth: A Cross-Country Comparison of Banks, Markets, and Development
This is the first broad cross-country assessment of the ties between financial structure -- the mix of financial instruments, institutions, and markets in a given economy -- and economic growth since Raymond Goldsmith's 1969 landmark study. Most studies focus on developed countries and compare bank-based and market-based systems. Debates over the...
Japan's Great Stagnation: Financial and Monetary Policy Lessons for Advanced Economies
Japan's Great Stagnation: Financial and Monetary Policy Lessons for Advanced Economies
After experiencing spectacular economic growth and industrial development for much of the postwar era, Japan plunged abruptly into recession in the early 1990s and since then has suffered a prolonged period of economic stagnation, from which it is only now emerging. Japan's malaise, marked by recession or weak economic activity, commodity and asset...

Bureaucratic Landscapes: Interagency Cooperation and the Preservation of Biodiversity
Bureaucratic Landscapes: Interagency Cooperation and the Preservation of Biodiversity

Political scientists have long been concerned about the tension between institutional fragmentation and policy coordination in the United States bureaucracy. The literature is rife with examples of agencies competing with each other or asserting their independence, while cooperation is relatively rare. This is of particular importance in...

Knowledge-Based Neurocomputing
Knowledge-Based Neurocomputing
Neurocomputing methods are loosely based on a model of the brain as a network of simple interconnected processing elements corresponding to neurons. These methods derive their power from the collective processing of artificial neurons, the chief advantage being that such systems can learn and adapt to a changing environment. In knowledge-based...
The Machine Question: Critical Perspectives on AI, Robots, and Ethics
The Machine Question: Critical Perspectives on AI, Robots, and Ethics

One of the enduring concerns of moral philosophy is deciding who or what is deserving of ethical consideration. Much recent attention has been devoted to the "animal question" -- consideration of the moral status of nonhuman animals. In this book, David Gunkel takes up the "machine question": whether and to what extent...

The Neural Simulation Language: A System for Brain Modeling
The Neural Simulation Language: A System for Brain Modeling
The Neural Simulation Language (NSL), developed by Alfredo Weitzenfeld, Michael Arbib, and Amanda Alexander, provides a simulation environment for modular brain modeling. NSL is an object-oriented language offering object-oriented protocols applicable to all levels of neural simulation. One of NSL's main strengths is that it allows for realistic...
