  • Joins connectionism and symbolism by making good use of neural networks and explains the relationship between representation and physical meaning
  • Goes beyond robotics and artificial intelligence opening up a new world of conscious robots
  • Connects words and feelings using a neural network and created a model with which human consciousness can be explained


Present-day computers lack well-defined functions to accept various kinds of sensual information such as vision, hearing, and smelling (binding problem). Computers also lack any well-defined mechanisms to coordinate various behaviors in the presence of an object (conscious mechanism). This book serves as a breakthrough that opens a new world. Using the ideas presented in the book, computer systems can be developed to conduct conscious activities like human beings. Human beings will be able to develop mechanisms in which machines will have their own feelings, will behave according to their own consciousness, and will continue to learn for their betterment.
