Thinking About the Brain
by William Bialek
Publisher: arXiv 2002
Number of pages: 85
We all are fascinated by the phenomena of intelligent behavior, as generated both by our own brains and by the brains of other animals. As physicists we would like to understand if there are some general principles that govern the structure and dynamics of the neural circuits that underlie these phenomena.

Neural networks excel in a number of problem areas where conventional von Neumann computer systems have traditionally been slow and inefficient. This book is going to discuss the creation and use of artificial neural networks.
