The cover suggests the major facets of current research in 'self-organizing' machines, a subset of the research applied to developing some form of 'artificial intelligence'. The block diagram suggests a machine that is learning the alphabet... The illustration of a neural net suggests the type of network researchers are using as a partial guide. The eye represents the type of sensor most often provided the machine in current research...' .
