Foundations of Neural Computation

Since its founding in 1989 by Terrence Sejnowski, Neural Computation has become the leading journal in the field. Foundations of Neural Computationcollects, by topic, the most significant papers that have appeared in the journal over the past nine years.

Edited by Geoffrey Hinton

The six contributions in Connectionist Symbol Processing address the current tension within the artificial intelligence community between advocates of powerful symbolic representations that lack efficient learning procedures and advocates of relatively simple learning procedures that lack the ability to represent complex structures effectively. The authors seek to extend the representational power of connectionist networks without abandoning the automatic learning that makes these networks interesting.
