Special Session on Ying-Yang Computation
for Brain, Behavior and Machine Learning
Beijing, China, October 13-15, 2005
This special session at the second International Conference on Neural Networks and Brain (ICNN&B2005, http://cnnc.org.cn/) is focused on Ying-Yang Computation and its applications in brains&behavior, machine learning, bioinformatics, medical informatics, and health.
Ying-Yang (Yin-Yang, YinYang, Yin Yang or Ying Yang) Computation is a scientific computing methodology by extracting useful mathematical models from a traditional Ying-Yang theory. In recent years, a formal scientific basis has emerged that uncovered Ying-Yang to a universal theoretical methodology for different sciences and applications such as analytical methodology, divide-and-conquer, decision and coordination, brain science, biology, medicine, balance and harmony in human health and complex systems under uncertainty, etc. Ying and Yang, the two fundamental components of Taichi, are two symmetrical and complementary coexisting aspects of one matter that are mutually coupled in an equilibrium or even a harmony to jointly face a same world with shared tasks. The balance or harmony between Ying and Yang is important and crucial to various complex systems such as the human brain and the human body in terms of stability, reliability, health, and robustness.
