Machine learning is a mechanism that gives a computing machine the ability to learn without explicit instructions [2].
In other words, the overall system will correspond to the whole animal with sense organs, effectors, proprioceptors and not, as in an ultra-rapid computing machine, to an isolated brain, depending on our intervention for its experiences and its effectiveness.
This, in compliance with the foundation work laid down by Alan Turing, led to the need for a computing machine that would operate and execute commands without the need for human intervention.
Our results are significant because they demonstrate for the first time a synthetic designed computing machine that not only computes iteratively, but also produces biologically relevant results.
The question of whether machines could think was on many people's minds even in the infancy of computing machines.
His stunning accomplishments in theoretical realms--the concept of the algorithm, a vision of a computing machine that could follow rules to manipulate symbolic information fed to it on a strip of tape, and a new understanding of the biological processes that cause organisms to develop their shapes--would have been unlikely to win the same leniency.
Using any deterministic sequential computing machine, NP problems are verifiable in polynomial time while they are not decidable except in exponential time" [11, page 265].
We know that a computing machine performs infinitely many computational steps in finite time.
Fewer greater disservices have been done in the past to innovations of man than the coining of the phrase 'electronic brain' to describe a computing machine.
uk) Not only built like a tank to withstand even the most ferocious of board meetings, this road warrior computing machine has got great specifications.
Later this year, could your magazine feature a story on the German-American Desch and his Computing Machine Laboratory, which worked to break the Enigma code?
Rather than add to this imbroglio, we believe that 50 years after Turing's article it is timely to consider more directly the effects of success in building such an imitation device: granted that a computing machine passes the Turing test, would intelligence alone make it useful to its human creators?
