(all abstracts and first chapter)
Keywords: Artificial Neural Networks, Hybrid Neural Systems,
Connectionism, Hybrid Symbolic Neural Architectures, Cognitive
Neuroscience, Machine Learning, Language Processing
The aim of this book is to present a broad spectrum of current
research in hybrid neural systems, and advance the state of the art in
neural networks and artificial intelligence. Hybrid neural systems are
computational systems which are based mainly on artificial neural
networks but which also allow a symbolic interpretation or interaction
with symbolic components.

This book focuses on the following issues related to different types
of representation: How does neural representation contribute to the
success of hybrid systems? How does symbolic representation
supplement neural representation? How can these types of
representation be combined? How can we utilize their interaction and
synergy? How can we develop neural and hybrid systems for new
domains? What are the strengths and weaknesses of hybrid neural
techniques? Are current principles and methodologies in hybrid neural
systems useful? How can they be extended? What will be the impact of
hybrid and neural echniques in the future?
