Some Remarks on “The Computer and the Brain”
Дж. Л. Ковач

Изменена: 2018-06-20


This paper contains some remarks, comments and explanations about some statements and calculations of the unfinished book written by John von Neumann with the goal to publish his Silliman Lectures at Yale University, USA. The book with the title „The Computer and the Brain” was first published in 1958, while John von Neumann passed away in February 1957. This book should be used as one of the basic studies for all engineers, information technology and computer people.
