The Measure of All Minds: Evaluating Natural and Artificial Intelligence
The Measure of All Minds: Evaluating Natural and Artificial Intelligence

Are psychometric tests valid for a new reality of artificial intelligence systems, technology-enhanced humans, and hybrids yet to come? Are the Turing Test, the ubiquitous CAPTCHAs, and the various animal cognition tests the best alternatives? In this fascinating and provocative book, José Hernández-Orallo formulates major...

Conceptual Blockbusting: A Guide to Better Ideas
Conceptual Blockbusting: A Guide to Better Ideas
James Adams's unique approach to generating ideas and solving problems has captivated, inspired, and guided thousands of people from all walks of life. Now, twenty-five years after its original publication, Conceptual Blockbusting has never been more relevant, powerful, or fresh. Integrating insights from the worlds of psychology,...
Writing mental ray® Shaders: A Perceptual Introduction (mental ray® Handbooks)
Writing mental ray® Shaders: A Perceptual Introduction (mental ray® Handbooks)

The word "render" isn't unique to the vocabulary of computer graphics. We can talk about a "watercolor rendering," a "musical rendering" or a "poetic rendering." In each of these, there is a transformation from one domain to another: from the landscape before the painter to color on paper, from...

Voice and Speech Quality Perception: Assessment and Evaluation (Signals and Communication Technology)
Voice and Speech Quality Perception: Assessment and Evaluation (Signals and Communication Technology)
Foundations of Voice and Speech Quality Perception starts out with the fundamental question of: "How do listeners perceive voice and speech quality and how can these processes be modeled?" Any quantitative answers require measurements. This is natural for physical quantities but harder to imagine for perceptual measurands. This book...

Auditory and Visual Sensations
Auditory and Visual Sensations

The subject of the book is the grounding of architectural acoustics in psychophysics (perception, listener preferences) and neuroscience (auditory function, neural correlates of perception and preference). This is the first rational-scientific approach to designing performance spaces that is based on systematic psychoacoustical observations of...

Narrative Space and Time: Representing Impossible Topologies in Literature (Routledge Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Literature)
Narrative Space and Time: Representing Impossible Topologies in Literature (Routledge Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Literature)

Space is a central topic in cultural and narrative theory today, although in most cases theory assumes Newtonian absolute space. However, the idea of a universal homogeneous space is now obsolete. Black holes, multiple dimensions, quantum entanglement, and spatio-temporal distortions of relativity have passed into culture at large. This book...

Signal Processing, Perceptual Coding and Watermarking of Digital Audio: Advanced Technologies and Models (Premier Reference Source)
Signal Processing, Perceptual Coding and Watermarking of Digital Audio: Advanced Technologies and Models (Premier Reference Source)
The availability of increased computational power and the proliferation of the Internet have facilitated the production and distribution of unauthorized copies of multimedia information. As a result, the problem of copyright protection has attracted the interest of the worldwide scientific and business communities. The most...
3D Shape: Its Unique Place in Visual Perception
3D Shape: Its Unique Place in Visual Perception
The uniqueness of shape as a perceptual property lies in the fact that it is both complex and structured. Shapes are perceived veridically—perceived as they really are in the physical world, regardless of the orientation from which they are viewed. The constancy of the shape percept is the sine qua non of shape perception; you are...
Modern Image Quality Assessment (Synthesis Lectures on Image, Video, & Multimedia Processing)
Modern Image Quality Assessment (Synthesis Lectures on Image, Video, & Multimedia Processing)
This book is about objective image quality assessment—where the aim is to provide computational models that can automatically predict perceptual image quality. The early years of the 21st century have witnessed a tremendous growth in the use of digital images as a means for representing and communicating information. A considerable percentage...
