About this book

This volume presents several machine intelligence technologies, developed over recent decades, and illustrates how they can be combined in application. One application, the detection of dementia from patterns in speech, is used throughout to illustrate these combinations. This application is a classic stationary pattern detection task, so readers may easily see how these combinations can be applied to other similar tasks. The expositions of the methods are supported by the basic theory they rest upon, and their application is clearly illustrated. The book’s goal is to allow readers to select one or more of these methods to quickly apply to their own tasks.

About the authors

Professor Walker Land Jr. performed twenty years of classified military research for IBM, none of which can be discussed here. He retired from IBM in 1990 and joined Binghamton University for 26 years, retiring a second time at the rank of Research Professor in 2014. He is known as one of the prime developers of the GRNN oracle ensemble method for learning classifier systems. He also made contributions to the original TIROS satellite system, the forerunner of the current weather satellite system, as well as made original contributions to the 200 and 500 series Saturn/Apollo lunar flyby and landing programs.

Professor J David Schaffer published many years on genetic algorithms. He retired as Research Fellow after 25 years with Philips Research. He has a citation index of 12000 (Google Scholar), holds 43 issued US patents and was designated a Pioneer in Evolutionary Computation by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society in 2012. He serves on the editorial board of the Evolutionary Computation Journal, and on the steering committee for the bi-annual conference series Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization (EMO).
