Dear all,

Some of you will be interested in our recent book, Growing Adaptive
Machines: Combining Development and Learning in Artificial Neural Networks.

The topic is the generation of low-level neural network architectures using
bio-inspired models and simulations. By emulating the biological process of
development, we can incorporate desirable characteristics of natural neural
systems into engineered designs and thus move closer towards the creation
of brain-like systems.

The book includes two broad reviews, summaries of research portfolios from
established researchers, and new research contributions. We believe it will
form a valuable reference for advanced students and practitioners. See
below for the table of contents.



Best regards,

Taras Kowaliw, Nicolas Bredeche, René Doursat (Editors)
