Other Neural Network Sites
and Info Sources
The NN information available on the WWW is growing, but doesn't yet approach
that available through universities, libraries, and books. However, from the
viewpoint of interest and fun, there's lots to explore. Also, there's an increasing
amount of good reference material. Here's an annotated list of some good starting
points. If you have other favorites, we'd be glad to hear from you.
Most of the links on this page leave the ANSR web pages... If you go, farewell,
and happy exploring! Hope to see you again sometime!
BRIEF, INTRODUCTORY MATERIAL
The items and links in this and the next section are listed roughly in
order of increasing completeness, depth and technical detail. Many of the sites
listed in the later sections of this page also contain introductory material
of various kinds.
MORE EXTENSIVE EDUCATIONAL MATERIAL
Networks by C. Stergiou and D. Siganos (Imperial College, London) - Covers
some basic NN types and applications (22 pages)
Nets by Kevin Gurney - NN theory from a psychology perspective
- Neural Computing: Theory and Practice,
by P. D. Wasserman (Van Nostrand Reinhold, NY, 1986) -
gives a broad, moderately technical overview of several
of the early innovations in the field; emphasizes
computational science approach
- Neurocomputing, by R. Hecht-Nielsen
(Addison-Wesley, NY, 1989) - presents a number of
early NN applications; computational/engineering approach
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The Usenet group, comp.ai.neural-nets - maintains an extensive
set of files on its Frequently Asked Questions. The FAQ
Introduction provides an overview and links to the seven (current) sections.
These notes amount to well over 100 pages! Included are many suggestions
for books, free software, and further information.
FREE NN SOFTWARE
- Neural Networks at
your Fingertips by K. Kutza - This link provides a table describing
eight common NN's and provides free downloadable software with an application
example for each [as of this writing, I have not tested the software -wcm].
UNIVERSITY, LABORATORY, AND RESEARCH GROUPS
This list will undoubtedly grow, but I've resolved initially to keep it
short! Initial inclusions are chosen for variety and site interest. Annotations
give salient site characteristics.
- MIT's Center
for Biological and Computational Learning (CBCL) - emphasis on connections
between biological and computational methods of achieving intelligence;
this site gets quite technical, quite quickly, so don't be surprised if
it becomes rough going; emphasis on mechanisms of vision
- Boston University's Dept. of Cognitive
and Neural Systems/Center for Adaptive Systems (CNS/CAS) - site is
heavily oriented towards academic and professional interests; substantial
collection of research papers available via download; interests include brain,
vision, and motor functions
- Los Alamos National Laboratory Search
- LANL site search engine: use keyword "Neural Network" to find
a large and varied list of reports on NN research results.
- University of Texas at Austin (UTCS) Neural Network Research Group
- site describes UTCS research and includes downloadable software
of some NN demonstrations and projects; like many NN sites, download software
is strongly oriented towards Unix systems. This site has a very good link
page to University research groups around the world.
Here, too, the list is limited and chosen for site
interest and variety.
- Accurate Automation
Corporation - Realtime applications using NN hardware
- NeuroDimensions, Inc. - High-end NN
- PMSI - This site offers
several nifty demos illustrating simple NN and genetic algorithm applications.
Some incisive tutorials on Data Mining are quite interesting, as well.
