Shape Understanding System: Machine Understanding and Human Understanding (Studies in Computational Intelligence) - Zbigniew Les & Magdalena Les
English | 2015 | 258 Pages | ISBN: 3319141961 | PDF | 16.18 MB

This is the third book presenting selected results of research on the further development of the shape understanding system (SUS) carried out by authors in the newly founded Queen Jadwiga Research Institute of Understanding. In this book the new term Machine Understanding is introduced referring to a new area of research aiming to investigate the possibility of building machines with the ability to understand. It is presented that SUS needs to some extent mimic human understanding and for this reason machines are evaluated according to the rules applied for the evaluation of human understanding. The book shows how to formulate problems and how it can be tested if the machine is able to solve these problems.

Cities and Natural Process: A Basis for Sustainability

Cities and Natural Process: A Basis for Sustainability
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415298555 | edition 2004 | PDF | 292 pages | 29 mb

Cities and Natural Process is a discussion of the fundamental conflict in the perception of nature and an expression of the essential need for an environmental view when approaching urban design. Michael Hough outlines how natural and human processes are altered by the city and how this leads to changes in attitudes and cultural values. He reveals how alternative values based on ecological insights offer the possibility of a constructive relationship with the urban environment. Practical examples of opportunities that are often unrecognized serve to illustrate the potential for beneficial change.
