Doing Sequence Analysis by Inspecting the Order in which Neural Networks Learn

  • S. Brunak


The worldwide interest in artificial neural networks that has emerged during the 1980’es has its origins in the dual nature of neural networks: they belong to the class of non-linear dynamical systems, but can also be used as general modeling devices for such systems. Non-linear dynamical systems have traditionally been extremely difficult to model, theoretically or experimentally.
