Abstract Because of the “all-or-none” character of nervous activity, neural events and the relations among them can be treated by means of propositional logic. It is found that the behavior of every net can be described in these terms, with the addition of more complicated logical means for nets containing circles; and that for any logical expression satisfying certain conditions, one can find a net behaving in the fashion it describes. It is shown that many particular choices among possible neurophysiological assumptions are equivalent, in the sense that for every net behaving under one assumption, there exists another net which behaves under the other and gives the same results, although perhaps not in the same time. Various applications of the calculus are discussed.

Rudolf Carnap's entire theory of Language structure "came to me," he reports, "like a vision during a sleepless night in January 1931, when I was ill." This theory appeared in The Logical Syntax of Language (1934). Carnap argued that many philosophical controversies really depend upon whether a particular language form should be used. This leads him to his famous "Principle of tolerance" by which everyone is free to mix and match the rules of his language and therefore his logic in any way he wi...

Abstract null null We consider the exact rogue periodic wave (rogue wave on the periodic background) and periodic wave solutions for the Chen–Lee–Liu equation via the odd-th order Darboux transformation. Then, the multi-layer physics-informed neural networks (PINNs) deep learning method is applied to research the data-driven rogue periodic wave, breather wave, soliton wave and periodic wave solutions of well-known Chen–Lee–Liu equation. Especially, the data-driven rogue periodic wave is learned ...

Abstract null null Photovoltaic (PV) panels are commonly used as clean energy sources. However, their performance is sensitive to environmental conditions. In this work, a hybrid model of artificial neural networks (ANNs) and multiverse optimization (MVO)/genetic algorithm (GA) were implemented to predict PV output power, efficiency, and cell temperature. The main goal of the optimizer was to develop and update an ANN methodology based on training and forecasting. The numbers of neurons in the h...

Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are inspired by the biological nervous system. The high performance of such ANNs is achieved through the dynamic change of the synaptic weights by applying self-optimizing learning algorithms. Despite the simple operations for each single element in an ANN, a network with a huge amount of simulated elements consumes lots of computing capacity using von Neumann computer architectures. To overcome this issue, neuromorphic devices facilitate the design of hardware ...
Within the context of the latest resurgence in the application of artificial intelligence approaches, deep learning has undergone a renaissance over recent years. These methods have been applied to a number of problems in computational chemistry. Compared to other machine learning approaches, the practical performance advantages of deep neural networks are often unclear. However, deep learning does appear to offer a number of other advantages such as the facile incorporation of multitask learnin...

Abstract null null Artificial neural networks have been used to predict nonlinear structural time histories under seismic excitation because they have a significantly lower computational cost than the traditional time-step integration method. However, most existing techniques require simplification procedures such as downsampling to maintain identical length and sampling rates, and they lack sufficient accuracy, generality, or interpretability. In this paper, a recursive long short-term memory (...
