Artificial Neural Networks

Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics book series (STS)


The learning technique of artificial neural networks (ANNs, or just neural networks or NNs) is the focus of this chapter. The development of ANNs evolved in periodic “waves” of research activity. ANNs were influenced by the fortunes of the fields of artificial intelligence and expert systems, which sought to answer questions such as: What makes the human brain such a formidable machine in processing cognitive thought? What is the nature of this thing called “intelligence” ? And, how do humans solve problems?
