Paper offers a mathematical formulation of the brain's neural networks As computer scientists this year celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the mathematical genius Alan Turing, who set out the basis for digital computing in the 1930s to anticipate the electronic age, they still quest after a machine as adaptable and intelligent as the human brain. Now, computer scientist Hava Siegelmann of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, an expert in neural networks, has taken...

By Stephen Kopfinger She left England a ship of millionaires. She docked in New York a few days later, with a passenger list of ruined men. It was October 1929, and the liner was the British steamer Berengaria, a floating palace catering to the rich and titled; and now, thanks to a stock market crash - the stock market crash of all time - the suddenly poor. Ancient history, we console ourselves. Except history sort of repeated itself the other week. Not as catastrophically as the...

Researchers have developed a nomogram (alignment chart) specifically for women that can be used to predict their expected exercise capacity at any given age, as well as demonstrated that the resulting measure is a predictor of the risk of death. Women whose exercise capacity was less than 85 percent the age-predicted value had twice the risk of death compared to women reaching at least 85 percent. according to research led by Martha Gulati, MD, a cardiologist at the Bluhm Cardiovascular...

In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is a step-by-step procedure for calculations. Algorithms are used for calculations, automated reasoning, and data processing. An algorithm is an effective technique expressed as a finite list of well-defined instructions for calculating a function. Starting from an initial state and an initial input, the instructions describe a computation that, when executed, proceeds through a finite number of well-defined successive states and eventually...

Konrad Zuse (June 22, 1910 "“ December 18, 1995) was a German civil engineer and computer pioneer of the twentieth century. His most notable accomplishment was his 1941 invention of the world's first functional program-controlled Turing-complete computer, called the Z3. In 1964, he was honored with the Werner-von-Siemens-Ring for this project. Zuse also contributed the design of the first high-level programming language, Plankalkül. In 1948, he published his design, but the...
