Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs)



This section presents a short introduction into the ANN field. Starting with the definition of ANNs, and going through a brief history and a classification of ANNs, this section then explains why researchers are still trying to develop this field, generally speaking, and also why I, in particular, have chosen this field of research. After these introductory sections, some of the most common and most popular ANNs and learning algorithms are introduced to the reader. The stress is mainly on the algorithms and net structures similar with the ones used furtheron in the thesis.
