Artificial neural networks are changing the world. What are they?

  • An artificial neural network is (supposed to be) the exact same thing, but simulated with software.
  • Is an artificial neural network an exercise in computing science?
  • The other side of a neural network lies in carefully designing it to mirror the structure of brains.
  • These artificial neural networks (ANNs) only ever exist as a simulation running on a regular digital computer, but what goes on inside that simulation is fundamentally very different from classical computing.
  • There have been attempts at self-editing versions of regular software, but it’s artificial neural networks that have taken the concept of machine learning to new heights.
