Overview

Intelligent Networks: Recent Approaches and Applications in Medical Systems

This textbook offers an insightful study of the intelligent Internet-driven revolutionary and fundamental forces at work in society. The readers will have access to tools and techniques to mentor and monitor these forces rather than be driven by changes in Internet technology and flow of money. These submerged social and human forces form a powerful synergistic foursome web of (a) processor technology, (b) evolving wireless networks of the next generation, (c) the intelligent Internet, and (d) the motivation that drives individuals and corporations. In unison, the technological forces can tear human lives apart for the passives, or provide a cohesive set of opportunities for the knowledgeable to lead and reap the rewards in the evolved knowledge society.

The book also provides an in-depth coverage of the functions embedded in modern processors and intelligent communication networks. It focuses on the convergence of the design of modern processor technologies with the switching and routing methodologies of global intelligent networks. Most of the concepts that are generic to the design of terra-flop parallel processors and the terra-bit fiber-optic networks are presented. This book also highlights the most-recent developments in computer and processor technologies into the microscopic and macroscopic medical functions in hospitals and medical centers.

  • Examination of the latest technologies and innovations presented from both an academic and industrial perspective of the concurrent dynamic changes in computer and communication industries.
  • An upto date and coherent perspective of the developments in the wireless and fiber optic network technologies based on the experience and developments in the older copper, cable and hybrid fiber-coaxial communication systems
  • Provides a set of novel concepts and methodologies for the innovators in industry

About the Author

Syed V. Ahamed received his Ph.D. and D. Sc. (E.E.) degrees from the University of Manchester and his MBA (Econ.) from the New York University. He taught at the University of Colorado for 2 years before joining AT&T Bell Laboratories in 1966. In 1982 he returned to teaching and became a Professor of Computer Science at the City University of New York and a member of the Doctoral Faculty in 1985. Professor Ahamed has been a telecommunications consultant to Bell Communications Research, AT&T Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies and elsewhere, since 1984. He is the co-recipient of the 1981 IEEE Communications Society, Leonard G. Abraham Prize Paper Award. In 1992 he became a Fellow of the IEEE for his seminal contribution to the simulation and design studies of the High-speed Digital Subscriber Lines. He has authored and coauthored several books in two broad areas of intelligent AI-based broadband multimedia networks and computational framework for knowledge. His doctoral students continue to contribute to knowledge processing systems and wisdom machines proposed by him in 1999 and 2006. In 2004, he wrote the book "The Art of Scientific Innovation,” for new doctoral students. These books are based on his teaching and mentoring scores of Ph.D. students at the Graduate Center of City University of New York. Syed also holds over 20 American and European patents ranging from slip-meters for induction motors to medical networks for hospitals.
