Goedel, Escher, Bach. An eternal golden braid by Douglas R. Hofstadter

By Douglas R. Hofstadter

Douglas Hofstadter’s e-book is anxious at once with the character of “maps” or hyperlinks among formal structures. even if, in accordance with Hofstadter, the formal method that underlies all psychological job transcends the method that helps it. If existence can develop out of the formal chemical substrate of the telephone, if attention can emerge out of a proper method of firing neurons, then so too will pcs reach human intelligence. Gödel Escher and Bach is a superb exploration of interesting principles on the center of cognitive technology: that means, aid, recursion, and lots more and plenty more.

1 Matches produced after collections are transmitted from collecting device to a separate database Match only against files collected by the individual device or uploaded from other devices Match against dataset of watchlisted individuals Description • Requires reliable and near real-time communications between collector and database • Requires dedicated analytical effort to produce/update watchlist • Communications required to receive watchlist updates • Database can be of varying sizes and composition • May be sufficient for certain operations or operational environments • Critical for timely tactical identification • Can be used in conjunction with other matching schemes • Limited dataset to match against • Communications is not a concern • Immediate match results are provided • Immediate match results provided • Matches indicate POIs • Communications not required during matching process • Match results may include operational guidance • Potentially large dataset maximizes chances for a match Remarks Disadvantages Advantages Comparison of Matching Schemes GenerAL oPerAtionAL issUes BioMetriCs in sUPPort oF MiLitAry oPerAtions connectivity, and some handheld or disconnected systems have gone for months without uploading watchlist updates.

Central Command (CENTCOM) regarding predeployment biometrics training. There were dozens of required joint training tasks for individuals and units deploying to the CENTCOM area but none for biometrics. I eventually put together a short list and sent it to the CENTCOM Biometrics office, but I am not sure if they were ever put into formal usage. 31 BioMetriCs in sUPPort oF MiLitAry oPerAtions Quality and completeness of collection are two key areas that also need to be maximized whenever possible.

Unfortunately, such a common sense and holistic approach to collecting biometric data was not employed to maximum effect through most of the last decade of war, primarily because there was a lack of the vision and authority to make it happen. ” I could have written an entire chapter just about training issues. When I returned to the United States from Afghanistan, I went immediately to Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC) at Fort Polk, LA to discuss biometrics training for predeploying forces and observe some of the training in action.
