ABSTRACT
:


This report is an
overview

to
Artificial Neural Networks. The various
types of neural networks are explained

and demonstrated, applications of neural
network
s like ANNs in medicine are
described, and a detailed historical
background is provided. The connection
between the artificial and the real thing is
also investigated and explained. Finally,
the mathematical models involved are
presented and demonstrated.








A neural network is a
massively parallel distributed processor
made up of simple

processing units, which
has a neutral propensity for storing
experiential knowledge and marking it
available for use.


It resembles the brai
n in two respects


1.

Knowledge is acquired by the
network form its environment
through a learning process.

2.

Interneuron connection strengths,
known as synoptic weights, are
used to store acquired know
l
e
dge.


INTRODUCTION
:



An Artificial Neural
Network
(ANN) is an information processing
paradigm that

is inspired by the way
biological nervous systems, such as the
brain, process information.






Fig: Arti
ficial neural networks




The key element of this paradigm is

the novel structure of the information
processing system. It is composed of a
large number of highly interconnected
processing elements (neurones) working

in unison
to solve specifi
c problems.





An ANN is configured for a specific
application, such as pattern recognition or
data classification, through a learning
process. Learning in biological systems
involves adjustments to the synaptic
connections that exist between the
ne
urons
.





The first artificial neuron was
produced in 1943 by the neurophysiologist
Warren McCulloch and the logician Walter
Pits. But the technology available at that
time did not allow them to do too much.


How the machines learns
:



T
here are many different ways
that a neural network can learn. Every
learning algorithm involves somehow
modifying the weights matrixes between
the neurons.


Neural networks are usually
designed to recognize patterns in
data.

A neural network can be trained to
recognize specific patterns in data.

In this we

will
discuss

the basic layout

of a neural network and end by
demonstrating the Hopfield neural
network, which is one of the simplest
forms of neural network.


What
are neural networks?



Artificial neural networks (ANNs)
are software or hardware systems
designed to simulate the operation of a
simple biological nervous system.

Why use neural networks:



Neural networks, with their
remarkable ability to derive meaning from
complicated or imprecise data, can be used
to extract patterns and detect

trends that
are too complex to be noticed by either
humans or other computer techniques. A
trained neural network can be thought of
as an "expert" in the category of
information it has been given to analyse.
This expert can then be used to provide
project
ions given new situations of interest
and answer "what if" questions.


.

Neural networks versus conventional
computers:



Neural networks take a different
approach to problem solving than that of
conventional computers.





Conventio
nal computers use an
algorithmic approach i.e. the computer
follows a set of instructions in order to
solve a problem. Unless the specific steps
that the computer needs to follow are
known the computer cannot solve

the
problem. That restricts the problem
solving capability of conventional
computers to problems that we already
understand and know how to solve.



Neural networks process
information in a similar way the human
brain does. The network is composed of a
large number of highly interc
onnected
processing
elements (
neurones) working in
parallel to solve a specific problem. Neural
networks learn by example. They cannot
be programmed to perform a specific task.



The disadvantage is that because the
network finds out how to solve t
he
problem by itself, its operation can be
unpredictable.


On the other hand,
conventional computers use a cognitive
approach to problem solving; the way the
problem is to solved must be known and
stated in small unambiguous instru
ctions.
These instructions are then converted to a
high level language program and then into
machine code that the computer can
understand. These machines are totally
predictable; if anything goes wrong is due
to a software or hardware fault.

tificial Neurons

How the Human Brain Learns
:




In the human brain, a typical neuron
collects signals from others through a host
of fine structures called dendrites. The
neuron sends out spikes of electrical
activity through a l
ong, thin stand known
as an axon, which splits into thousands of
branches.




At the end of each branch, a
structure called a synapse converts the
activity from the axon into electrical
effects that inhi
bit or excite activity

in the
connected

neurones. When a neuron
receives excitatory input that is
sufficiently large compared with its
inhibitory input, it sends a spike of
electrical activity down its axon.




Learning occurs by changing the
effectiveness of the synapses so that the
influence of one neuron on another
changes.

From Human
Neurons

to Artificial
Neurons
:



We conduct these neural networks by
first trying to deduce the essential features
of neurones and their interconnections. We
then typically program a computer to
simulate these features. However because
our knowledge of neurones is incompl
ete
and our computing power is limited,

our models are necessarily gross
idealisations of real networks of
neurons
.

The neuron model
:





A simple neuron
:




An artificial neuron is

a device with many inputs and one output.
The neuron has two modes of operation;
the training mode and the using mode. In
the training mode, the neuron can be
trained to fire (or not),for particular inp
ut
patterns. In the using mode, when a taught
input pattern is detected at the input, its
associated output becomes the current
output.


If the input pattern does not belong
in the taught list of input patterns, the
firing rule is used to determ
ine whether to
fire or not.

Pattern Recognition
:





An important application of neural
networks is pattern recognition. Pattern
re
cognition can be implemented by using a
feed
-
forward neural

network that has been
trained accordingly. During training, the
network is trained to associate outputs
with input patterns. When the network is
used, it identifies the input pattern and
tries to
output the associated output
pattern. The power of neural networks
comes to life when a pattern that has no
output associated with it, is given as an
input. In this case, the network gives the
output that corresponds to a taught input
pattern that is least

different from the
given pattern.



ADVANTAGES:



1.
The

statistical model of neural



networks is more complex that a


simple set of formulas, enabling it


to handle a wider variety of



operating conditions without having




t
o be retuned.

2. Because neural networks learn on



their own, they don't require control



system's experts, just simply enough



historical data so that they can



adequately train themselves.

3.

The neural network has long been



the mainstay of Artificial



I
ntelligence (AI) programming
.

4.

Neural networks also contribute to

7



other areas of research such as


neurology and psychology. They





are regularly used to model parts



of living organisms and to



investigate the internal



mechanisms of the brain.


LIMITATIONS:




The operation of large neural
networks is impossible to analyse
because of the huge number of
variables involved.



It is often impossible to understand
what the neural network “re
ally
thinks” even when a correct answer
is generated.



Neural systems need further
research before they are widely
accepted in industry.



The current neurone models are
simplistic compared to their
biological counterparts.



Even the largest ANNs tiny
compared

to an adult human brain
which
contains around

100 billion
neurones.



The typical artificial neural
architectures are simple compared
to real neural tissue.


FUTURE ENHANCEMENT:




Significant progress has been made
in the field of neural networks
-
enough to
attract a great deal of attention and fund
further research. Advancement beyond
current commercial applications appears to
be possible, and research is advancing the
field on many fronts. Neurally based chips
are emerging and applications to comp
lex
problems developing. Clearly, today is a
period of transition for neural network
technology.


Neural networks do not perform
miracles. But if used sensibly they can
produce some amazing results.


CONCLUSION:




Artificial Neural

Networks bring
m
achine intelligence a few steps
closer to the level of human
intelligence.



The intelligent machines of the
future will not be purely neural
entities but they will not be 100%
classical AI systems either.



The results obtained so far in the
field of ANNs ope
ns new windows
not only in electronics and
computing but in many other fields
of research.



The computing world has a lot to
gain from neural networks. Their ability to
learn by example makes them very
flexible and powerful. Furthermore there
is

no need to devise an algorithm in order
to perform a specific task; i.e. there is no
need to understand the internal
mechanisms of that task. They are also
very well suited for real time systems
because of their fast response and
computational times which

are due to their
parallel architecture.



Perhaps the most exciting aspect of
neural networks is the possibility that
some day 'consious' networks might be
produced. There is a number of scientists
arguing that conciousness is a 'mechanical'
property
and that 'consious' neural
networks are a realistic possibility.



Finally, I would like to state that
even though neural networks have a huge
potential we will only get the best of them
when they are intergrated with computing,
AI, fuzzy logic and

related subjects.
