Far more powerful networks can be made by adding extra layers of units between the input and the output. These extra units help extract features from the raw data. While the mechanism of neural nets is a greatly simplified version of the way the brain works, the properties they exhibit are helping to understand the brain. They are also intensifying a long-running debate on whether people learn by applying rules or merely by accumulating experiences. But some scientists question whether these machines are really Mr Ertterteinmem Network NICK Nickelodeon USA USA Network HBO....

Tempo Enterprises learning at all. "The neural network is just doing a good job of statistics," said Alan Lapedes of Los Alamos. Neural networks perform poorly on tasks that require ' precise answers because they deal in rough-estimates rather than exact calculations. "I would not want one of those things balancing my checkbook," said James A. Anderson, a professor at Brown University. ' One thing they can't do, said Marvin Minsky of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is count. Similarly, a person seeing a forest is unable to say immediately how many leaves are in view because it is impossible to count in parallel. But people can switch into a se quential mode and count the leaves, one after another. Indeed, Minsky said, the brain seems to be made up of many specialized networks that can call one another into play. That suggests that neural nets will eventually be linked to more conventional computers, with each handling the tasks to which they are best suited. Dial 622-7111 to begin home delivery. SI LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 1 Tarses Is Over His By Kathryn Baker Of tht Associated Press A SIGN on the wall of the nondescript, suburban studio that houses "Slap Happy Productions" warns that parking in the wrong space out front could elicit a tow by the neighboring floor store. This is big-time network television? Come to think of it, though, next door to Tile World is not such an unlikely place for Jay Tarses to make his un-Hollywood comedy, "The 'Slap' Maxwell Story," for ABC (8:30 Wednesdays, Channel 2 in St Louis). On a sound stage in the rear of the building, actors Dabney Coleman and Susan Anspach rehearse a scene, a bit of physical comedy involving a flubbed hand-off of a suitcase. Tarses is directing or rather, at the moment, watching. He stands patiently to the side while the actors try to work out the timing. Coleman plays "Slap" Maxwell, an old-school sports columnist. Anspach plays his estranged wife. After watching them struggle for a while, Tarses decides just to shoot it. Several takes later, he suggests to the guy with the clapboard, "Don't call it seven. It's 'another take.' " The actors take a break. They'll try again later. Tarses goes back to his office to talk for a bit about "Slap" and his other show, "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd," on NBC. "Molly" completed a successful 13-week run this summer and will return midseason. "Slap" premiered last week. Both shows are complex character comedies with touches of poignancy. "I try to get inside of these people's heads," Tarses says. "It's just interesting writing. It's just fun to write. I mean, jokes aren't fun to write anymore. Those are for nightclub comedians. It's just better to write people and the way they talk to each other, and their hopes and dreams " "And the hopes and dreams and everyone's careers are involved in this particular show," interrupts Coleman, who has come in to rehash the suitcase scene. He spends about 10 minutes working it out in Tarses' office. "Suppose she starts to hand it to me, I'm looking at the woman, she starts to hand it to me, as she starts to walk away, I get the message, and I'm still looking at the woman " ERMA I .WW S T ' Lifting The Curtain On First-Class Travel 1 WONDERED HOW long it would take airline passengers riding in tourist, economy and super-saver seats to storm the Limp Curtain of First Class. How long would they sit there and watch that little curtain being snapped together, leaving them suspicious and classless? How long would they watch little carts whip in and out behind those curtains before being challenged to take a peek? Well, folks, the revolution has begun. In a recent story in Travel & Leisure Magazine, a California woman was awarded $8,000 in a suit which alleged that a first-class passenger cursed and shoved her as she stood in line to use the bathroom in first class. (On a scale of guts, that's equivalent to landing a plane in Red Square in the Soviet Union.) The victim admitted she pushed through the Limp Curtain only as a last resort. She could not reach "her own" facilities because a drink cart blocked the aisle. The defendant charged that the woman "trespassed in first class and violated his priority right to use the bathroom." This is serious stuff. Oh sure, now it's only the loo, but this is only the first brick to be plucked from the Berlin Wall of the airways. Next thing you know, a super-saver passenger will try to infiltrate his garment bag into a first-class section or try to inhale first-class smoke. First-class travel has always been a mystique to most Ameri CHECK OUR PRICES BEFORE YOU BUY IAWN & FARM SEEDS OF ALL KINDS ALL VARIETIES OF BLUE GRASSES, RYE GRASSES & ALL VARIETIES OF TURF TYPE TALL FESCUE GRASS SEED WE CAN ALSO MIX ANY TYPE OF SEED REQUIRED TRY OUR BLUE GRASS BLEND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR THIS AREA ALL OF OUR SEEDS GUARANTEED TO GROW ALL FRESH STOCK AND HIGHEST QUALITY We carry one al the largest, moit complete line of lawn.

"Now we gotta do it" He leaves. Tarses calls after him: "We'll do it 10 times. If we don't get it on 10 the suitcase was stolen." Tarses resumes the Interview. "What was the question? No, I just do 'em because it's good writing. I like to write. I like to write clever things. It's writing, it's not just doing jokes." Tarses did jokes early in his career, as half of a comedy team with Tom Patchett, whom he met in 1956 when they shared an office in the advertising department of the Armstrong Cork Co. in Lancaster, Pa. A talk-show appearance with producer Carl Reiner launched them into television, writing and producing such shows as "The Carol Burnett Show," "The Bob New-hart Show," "The Mary Show" and "Open All Night." The partnership broke up after NBC canceled their last series together, "Buffalo Bill," a critics' favorite that still has a cult following. Tarses could be describing a divorce when he talks about the breakup. "We were together for 17 years, and I think we only should have been together for 10," he said. "I think the last seven years were a struggle, just pulling apart. "We did a lot of good work together and we needed each other at that time, and it was a good collaboration. But people change." Patchett made a comeback last season with the sweetly sardonic "ALF," a commercial success on NBC about wiseacre puppet space alien who lives with a typical American family. It wasn't any big surprise Patchett would do a show starring a puppet. He and Tarses wrote two of the Muppet movies. But Tarses turned to a deeper, more human comedy with "Molly" and now "Slap." Patchett's show is in its second season. For Tarses, second seasons are strange, new territory so far. He says if he winds up with two hit shows on television at the same time, he'll handle it somehow. "I want to be low-profile forever, and I want to work hard," he said. "I want to just immerse myself in the project, and that's pretty much what I do. I don't know how to do it any other way." BOMBECK cans, shrouded in fantasy and mystery. Some visualize it as a special place in the sky where skirts and flight times are shorter, entertainment is live, bathrooms are big enough to shut the door without standing on the seat and the pilot will go into a holding pattern if an orgy is in progress. Some people with great imagination actually visualize women with tiaras, large bosoms and lace fans throwing back their heads and laughing, "Let 'em eat stale sheet cake and green noodles back there." Most first-class passengers are sworn to uphold the secrets of the first-class myth when they buy their tickets. But now that a tourist passenger with a weak bladder has infiltrated the holy compartment it is ludicrous to keep silent any longer. The irony is that the Limp Curtain dividing first class from tourist was never meant to keep the tourists in the dark ... but the first-class passengers. No one wanted them to know that their cocktail service was longer so attendants could get tourist class served first. They wanted to keep secret the fact that although they were paying twice the fare, the food was the same and they had half as many bathrooms. Recently, I was riding in business class when I saw a first-class passenger spying at us through the Limp Curtain. He knows too much for them to let him live. iJ3t - Complete Line ol All types
