Artificial Neural Networks: International Workshop IWANN '91, Granada, Spain, September 17-19, 1991. Proceedings (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)
Artificial neural networks are massively parallel interconnected networks ofsimple elements which are intended to interact with the objects of the real world in the same way as biological nervous systems do. Interest in these networks is due to the opinion that they are able to perform tasks like image and speech recognition that have only been implemented in limited ways by traditional computing methods. This book includes invited lectures and the full contributions to the International Workshop onArtificial Neural Networks held in Granada, Spain, September 17-19, 1991. The workshop was sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, the Spanish Association for Computing and Automatics, and the University of Granada. The contributions were selected by an international program committee; the authors of the papers come from 12 countries. The book is organized in six sections, covering: - Neural network theories and neural models - Biological perspectives - Neural network architectures and algorithms - Software developments and tools - Hardware implementations - Applications.
