Reference Entry
A modeling technique based on the observed behavior of biological neurons in the human brain. It consists of a set of elements that start out connected in a random pattern, and based upon operational feedback, are molded into the pattern required to generate the proper results. A common architecture in artificial intelligence (AI) applications, neural networks are used in robotics, diagnosing, forecasting, image processing and pattern recognition. See AI and deep learning.
