Abstract:

The report consists of two chapters. A theoretical approach to duplicating biological systems of control with man-made devices is described in Chapter 5. The nature of conditioned and unconditioned reflexes in lower organisms is discussed, the possibility that some supposed reflexes even in fishes might really be evidence of mental activity being illustrated with examples. Pattern recognition in living organisms and attempts to duplicate them technologically are described in Chapter 6. Application of geometrical representations and statistical analysis to pattern recognition is discussed. The difficulty in selecting suitable parameters is emphasized. Author
