Designing And Implementing A Neural Network Library For Handwriting Detection, Image Analysis etc.- The BrainNet Library - Full Code, Simplified Theory, Full Illustration, And Examples

, 21 Oct 2009 CPOL
This article will explain the actual concepts and implementation of Backward Propagation Neural Networks very easily - see project code and samples, like a simple pattern detector, a hand writing detection pad, an xml based neural network processing language etc in the source zip.
