Neural Network


  • An approach to machine learning where the elements of the process resemble simulated neurons. Neurons, in turn, are thought to be the primary computational elements in the brain. Each element in a neural network receives some set of inputs, either from the environment or from other neurons. It then computes an output based on its inputs. Networks of these elements are capable of quite sophisticated computations. Computing with neural networks is also called brain-style computation.  1
