A neural network is a powerful computational data model that is able to capture and represent complex input/output relationships. The motivation for the development of neural network technology stemmed from the desire to develop an artificial system that could perform "intelligent" tasks similar to those performed by the human brain. No preliminary knowledge of neural networks is explicitly required. The book presents both classical and novel network architectures and learning algorithms for modelling and control. Topics include non-linear system identification, neural optimal control, top-down model based neural control design and stability analysis of neural control systems.

  The idea of simulating the brain was the goal of many pioneering works in Artificial Intelligence. The brain has been seen as a neural network, or a set of nodes, or neurons, connected by communication lines. Currently, there has been increasing interest in the use of neural network models. This book contains chapters on basic concepts of artificial neural networks, recent connectionist.   In the present paper, artificial neural networks (ANNs) are considered from a mathematical modeling point of view. A short introduction to feedforward neural networks is outlined, including multilayer perceptrons (MLPs) and radial basis function (RBF) networks. Examples of their applications in tribological studies are given, and important features of the data-driven modeling .

USE OF ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS IN GEOMECHANICAL AND PAVEMENT SYSTEMS Prepared by: A2K05(3) Subcommittee on Neural Nets and Other Computational Intelligence–Based Modeling Systems INTRODUCTION Over the past 2 decades, there has been an increased interest in a new class of computational intelligence systems known as artificial neural. Artificial neural networks (ANN) or connectionist systems are computing systems vaguely inspired by the biological neural networks that constitute animal brains. Such systems "learn" to perform tasks by considering examples, generally without being programmed with task-specific rules.

Mukherjee and Despande () presented the suitability of neural network for modeling an initial design process.

The preliminary design model is of vital importance in the synthesis of a finally acceptable solution in a design problem.

The design process is extremely difficult to computerise because it requires human intuition. The book aims at serving undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in ANN computational modelling.

The architecture of the BPN is a layered feed-forward neural network, in which the non-linear elements (neurons) are arranged in successive layers, and the information flows unidirectionally, from input layer to output layer, through the hidden layer(s) ().As can be seen in Fig.

1, nodes from one layer are connected (using interconnections or links) to all nodes in the adjacent layer(s), but. There are a wide variety of ANNs that are used to model real neural networks, and study behaviour and control in animals and machines, but also there are ANNs which are used for engineering purposes, such as pattern recognition, forecasting, and data compression.

Exercise This exercise is to become familiar with artificial neural network. The output layer collects the predictions made in the hidden layer and produces the final result: the model’s prediction. Here’s a closer look at how a neural network can produce a predicted output from input data.

The hidden layer is the key component of a neural network because of the neurons it contains; they work together to do the major calculations and produce the output. Downloadable.
