Neural networks were started about 50 years ago. Their early abilities were exaggerated, casting doubts on the field as a whole There is a recent renewed interest in the field, however, because of new techniques and a better theoretical understanding of their capabilities.

Motivation for neural networks:


Types of Applications


Machine learning:

Cognitive science:

Neurobiology: Modelling models of how the brain works.
