Programming neural networks with libfann



3, 4, 8, 11… ? A neural network can complete this series without knowledge of the underlying algorithm – by a kind of virtual gut feeling. We’ll show you how neural networks solve problems by simulating the behavior of a human brain.

If you look for a route on a map, your eyes will fall fairly directly on an efficient solution. The human brain is capable of making judgments without much attention to optimization algorithms or distance calculations. This intuitive approach is very foreign to digital computers. Conventional computer programs tend to operate through mathematical solutions, which make them inefficient for tasks such as prediction and pattern recognition. An experimental form of program known as an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) addresses this problem by making the computer operate more like a human brain.
