Video Title: Computer Chronicles: Neural Networks
Description: "Neural networks are artificial intelligence systems modeled after the human brain. This program looks at several examples and applications. Included are Braincel 1.1 from Promised Land Technologies [demonstrated by Murray Ruggiero], BrainMaker Professional 2.0 from California Scientific Software [demonstrated by Mark Lawrence], MacBrain 3.0 from Neurix [demonstrated by Matt Jensen], NeuroSMARTS from Cognition Technology [demonstrated by Richard Mansfield], and ExploreNet from HNC. Also includes visits to NASA [Max Reid describes HONN: Higher Order Neural Network] and Intel [Mark Holler describes ETANN: Electronically Trainable Analog Neural Network] to see the work they're doing on neural networks." Also appearing on the show is Tom J. Schwartz (The Schwartz Assoc.). Hosted by Stewart Cheifet and Jan Lewis.
