Example text

Dunbar (1999) contains a technical presentation of these results, including relevant equations. Vagueness is a term also applied to two, closely related, problems that are distinct from the topic here. Some entities have vague boundaries. For example, the moon's atmosphere peters out gradually, with no sharp boundary defining its edge. This is a feature of the real entity, not necessarily of our concept of the object. We might well conceptualize the atmosphere as having an effective limit at a certain altitude, and even think of it as having well-defined internal boundaries between layers of atmosphere.

D. An ethicist dismissed that as a callous attempt at rationalization. e. Make no mistake, he told me, that cluster of cells is the same way you and I, and all the rest of us, started our lives. f. One goes with a heavy heart if we use these, he said, because we are dealing with the seeds of the next generation. After repeating the crucial yes/no-question (8a), the speaker in this excerpt balances two positions against each other by simply quoting two anonymous sources, one researcher (8b–c) against an ethicist (8d–f).

In practice, feedforward networks typically have a third set of units between the input and output units. This extra set of units are termed ‘hidden units’ and by articulating the connections into a sequence of two sets of connections, they enable networks to learn more complex mappings from input patterns to output responses. To learn weights on connections that are not connected to output units, they must use more sophisticated learning algorithms, such as backpropagation learning. However, in general terms, they operate in the same way as the simpler example just described.
