Full Description
This book explores the design issues of intelligent engineering systems. Beginning with the foundations of psychological modeling of the human mind, the main emphasis is given to parallel & distributed realization of intelligent models for application in reasoning, learning, planning & multi-agent co-ordination problems. Case studies on human-mood detection & control, & behavioral co-operation of mobile robots are provided. This is the 1st comprehensive text of its kind, bridging the gap between Cognitive Science & Cognitive Systems Engineering. Each chapter includes plenty of numerical examples & exercises with sufficient hints, so that readers can solve the exercises on their own. Computer simulations are included in most chapters to give a clear idea about the application of the algorithms undertaken. This book is unique in its theme & contents - written with graduates in mind, it would also be a valuable resource for researchers in the fields Cognitive Science, Computer Science & Cognitive Engineering.
