Linking Human Neural Processes Directly with Technology — The Future?

  • K. Warwick


The field of neural networks appears to consist of two distinct schools, those studying the operation of carbon based versions, such as in humans or insects, and those studying the operation of silicon based versions, as in machines such as computers. The latter field has come to be known as Artificial Neural Networks.
