Unformatted text preview: Chapter 7: The Network Approach: Mind as A Web Connectionism- the major field of the network approach; connectionists construct Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs)-computer simulations of how groups of neurons might perform some tasks. Information Processing- ANNs utilize parallel distributed processing-processing strategy in which large numbers of computing units perform the calculations simultaneously-Traditional computers are serial processors-perform one computation at a time Approaches:-Knowledge-based approach- traditionally solving problems by using an algorithm in which every processing step is planned-relies on symbols and operators applied to symbols-behavior-based approach- connectionists instead let the ANN perform the computation on its own without any planning-concerned with the behavior of the network Knowledge Representation- I. ANN : uses distributed representation ; information exists as a collection of nodes and the connections between them...
