Explorations in the Microstructure of Cognition: Foundations
By David E. Rumelhart, James L. McClelland, PDP Research Group
What makes people smarter than computers? These volumes by a pioneering neurocomputing group suggest that the answer lies in the massively parallel architecture of the human mind. They describe a new theory of cognition called connectionism that is challenging the idea of symbolic computation that has traditionally been at the center of debate in theoretical discussions about the mind.The authors...
