Halicobacter And Homeopathy

file dates Everett David Rumelhart 1942 - 2011

With great sadness I received the news of the death of David Everett Rumelhart (June 12, 1942 - March 13, 2011), psychologist and mathematician who made enormous contributions to the formal analysis mind, mathematical psychology, artificial intelligence and parallel distributed processing .

When I studied psychology there in mid 90's, at the height of Cognitive Psychology, his " Parallel Distributed Processing: Explorations in the Microstructures of Cognition " (Rumelhart, DE, McClelland, JL, 1986 MIT Press: Cambridge, Mass) was one of the great references. In this work introduced a number of computer simulations of perceptual processes with which it provided the first models of parallel distributed processing based on neural networks. Apprenticeship their models using units of information processing based on neural networks hierarchically not remain topical today.

With computer models simulated Rumelhart and McClelland basic aspects of perception that have been the foundation of modern machine learning. In his honor was established in 2000 the prize David E. Rumelhart . In recent Rumelhart years suffered Pick's disease, a neurodegenerative syndrome whose complications has finally died.
