Neural networks. Editorial

Abstract: A neural network is a “connectionist” computational system. The computational systems we write are procedural; a program starts at the first line of code, executes it, and goes on to the next, following instructions in a linear fashion. A true neural network does not follow a linear path. Rather, information is processed collectively, in parallel throughout a network of nodes (the nodes, in this case, being neurons).The practical applicability and limitations of the main neural paradigms is revised by studying different main questions: when can a particular problem be approached by means of Artificial Neural Networks? Which is the most suitable neural paradigm for a particular problem? How must the available information be presented to the implemented network?
