 About the Book 

Christof Teuscher revives, analyzes, and simulates Turings ideas, applying them to different types of problems, and building and training Turings machines using evolutionary algorithms. In a little known paper entitled Intelligent MachineryMoreChristof Teuscher revives, analyzes, and simulates Turings ideas, applying them to different types of problems, and building and training Turings machines using evolutionary algorithms. In a little known paper entitled Intelligent Machinery Turing investigated connectionist networks, but his work was dismissed as a schoolboy essayand it was left unpublished until 1968, 14 years after his death. This is not a book about todays (classical) neural networks, but about the neuron network-like structures proposed by Turing. One of its novel features is that it actually goes beyond Turings ideas by proposing new machines. The book also contains a Foreward by B. Jack Copeland and D. Proudfoot.
