Neural Networks
Neural networks emulate the human brain’s neurons, which is a mesh-like network of interconnected processing components. This allows the system to process numerous pieces of information at the same time, and can learn to understand patterns within the processes, which it can use to solve related problems on its own. Examples include;
Military Weapons Systems
Voice Recognition
Check Signature Verification
Manufacturing Quality Control
Image Processing
Credit Risk Assessment
Investment Forecasting
Data Mining
