Description & Coverage
Description:

As science continues to advance, researchers are continually gaining new insights into the way living beings behave and function, and into the composition of the smallest molecules. Most of these biological processes have been imitated by many scientific disciplines with the purpose of trying to solve different problems, one of which is artificial intelligence.

Advancing Artificial Intelligence through Biological Process Applications presents recent advances in the study of certain biological processes related to information processing that are applied to artificial intelligence. Describing the benefits of recently discovered and existing techniques to adaptive artificial intelligence and biology, this book will be a highly valued addition to libraries in the neuroscience, molecular biology, and behavioral science spheres.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Artificial cell systems
  • Artificial concept learning
  • Artificial Intelligence Models
  • Artificial mind

Reviews and Testimonials

This book shows recent research works of great quality about information processing. It presents biological processes, some of them recently discovered, which show the treatment of different life processes at distinct levels (molecular, neural, social, etc.) that can be applied to Artificial Intelligence. It also presents the benefits of the new techniques created from these processes, not only to Artificial Intelligence, but also to multiple scientific areas: computer-science, biology, civil engineering, etc.

– Ana B. Porto Pazos, Coruna University, Spain

This is an advanced reckoning of information processing in artifical intelligence models that gives promise to future applications. Readers well versed in this area will find the articles stimulating. Weighted Numerical Score:87 - 3 Stars.
