Soft Computing and Fractal Theory for Intelligent by Prof. Dr. Oscar Castillo, Prof. Dr. Patricia Melin (auth.)

By Prof. Dr. Oscar Castillo, Prof. Dr. Patricia Melin (auth.)

We describe during this booklet, new tools for clever production utilizing delicate computing recommendations and fractal concept. smooth Computing (SC) comprises numerous computing paradigms, together with fuzzy good judgment, neural networks, and genetic algorithms, which might be used to supply robust hybrid clever platforms. Fractal conception presents us with the mathematical instruments to appreciate the geometrical complexity of normal gadgets and will be used for identity and modeling reasons. Combining SC recommendations with fractal conception, we will be able to benefit from the "intelligence" supplied by means of the pc equipment and in addition make the most of the descriptive energy of the fractal mathematical instruments. business production structures may be regarded as non-linear dynamical structures, and consequently could have hugely advanced dynamic behaviors. for that reason, the necessity for computational intelligence in those production structures has now been good well-known. We give some thought to during this ebook the concept that of "intelligent production" because the software of sentimental computing ideas and fractal conception for reaching the pursuits of producing, that are construction making plans and keep an eye on, tracking and analysis of faults, and automatic quality controls. As a prelude, we offer a short evaluation of the present methodologies in smooth Computing. We then describe our personal method in facing the issues in attaining clever production. Our specific perspective is that to truly in achieving clever production in real-world purposes we have to use SC ideas and fractal theory.

La dignità ai tempi di Internet: per un'economia digitale by Jaron Lanier, Alessandro Delfanti

By Jaron Lanier, Alessandro Delfanti

L. a. rivoluzione digitale distrugge più posti di lavoro di quanti ne crei. Ci rallegriamo di scoprire che sul internet tutto è «gratis» e «open», o sta in keeping with diventarlo, ma nel frattempo l’economia dell’informazione concentra sempre più potere e ricchezza nelle mani di pochi. Mentre celebriamo le virtù democratiche di net, consegniamo il futuro ai colossi che controllano i server centrali e traggono immensi profitti dai dati che ricavano osservando le nostre vite. Sono i Server Sirena che, ammaliandoci con il richiamo del «free», ci imprigionano in una stagnazione economica perenne, con ricorrenti crisi finanziarie e disuguaglianze sempre più gravi. Com’è possibile che le straordinarie innovazioni degli ultimi decenni abbiano generato un sistema così oligarchico e disumanizzante? Unendo lo sguardo del tecnologo a un’acuta sensibilità sociale, Jaron Lanier illustra come e perché le tecnologie di rete cambiano le dinamiche del potere economico. E con esempi di folgorante potenza evocativa ci avverte: quando prenderanno piede stampanti 3D, infermieri robotici e veicoli autoguidati, los angeles disoccupazione dilagherà anche nell’industria, nella sanità e nei trasporti! Eppure, una through d’uscita realistica esiste. Se è vero che sono le informazioni a creare valore e arricchire i Server Sirena, bisogna concepire un sistema in cui gli individui siano retribuiti according to le informazioni che producono e condividono ogni giorno. Non è utopia, è una through d’uscita fondata sul recupero di una caratteristica già presente nelle major reti: los angeles bidirezionalità dei collegamenti. Spetta a noi decidere in step with una rivoluzione digitale che crei prosperità equamente diffusa, riconoscendo dignità alle persone.
