neural network

A form of artificial intelligence that relies on a group of interconnected mathematical equations that accept input data and calculate an output. The more often the equations are used, the more reliable and valuable they become in drawing conclusions from data. Neural networks have been used in health care to interpret electrocardiograms and to make and suggest diagnoses.

neural network

a proposed system of interconnecting neurones to explain the higher brain functions such as memory perception and learning, where the pattern of resulting activity can be varied through the number and strength of connections between the constituent neurones.
