Neural Networks 2012
Last week I had the honor to be part of the International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN) at the international conference centre in Brisbane,Australia. Also,the FUZZ and CEC events were merged in the event. These set of conferences is called World Congress of Computational Intelligence (WCCI). And it is organized every two years.
For me it was an outstanding experience,it was a good opportunity to gather knowledge and experiences from all over the world in terms of computational intelligence,the conferences about evolutionary computing and spiking neural networks were quite interesting and inspiring in the creation and application of new ideas and resources.
I was quite amused by a fact that Nikola Kasabov,one of the plenary speakers,explained in his exposition: A single spiking neuron,with the proper training,is able to recognize 20,or even 30 different patterns,with an acceptable success rate. Not only the fact its interesting,the reason it amused me so much is that,a colleague and friend of mine (Aleister Cachón) was able to achieve the same conclusion some time before in his thesis.
Here are some photos of the event:

An article in Rolling Stone (October 20, 1994) by Adam Miller called J. Philippe Rushton a 'professor of hate,' someone who 'takes money from an organization with a terrible past' (the Pioneer Fund, a foundation said to have an orientation toward eugenics). He is accused of being 'obsessed with intelligence and genetics' to the point of having 'racist' attitudes by Jeffrey Rosen and Charles Lane in The New Republic symposium on IQ (October 31, 1994). They single out Rushton for linking ethnocentricism to genetic factors; this in turn subjects him to the broad brush of being, along with Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray, 'Neo-Nazis' Newsweek (October 24, 1994). In The Chronicle of Higher Education (October 26, 1994) critiquing Herrnstein and Murray's The Bell Curve it is clear...
