neural network

also neural net
n.
A device or software program in which many interconnected elements process information simultaneously, adapting and learning from past patterns. Neural networks are often used to model the human brain.

neural network

n
1. (Physiology) an interconnected system of neurons, as in the brain or other parts of the nervous system
2. (Computer Science) Also called: neural net an analogous network of electronic components, esp one in a computer designed to mimic the operation of the human brain

neu′ral net′work


n.
1. any group of neurons that conduct impulses in a coordinated manner, as the assemblages of brain cells that record a visual stimulus.
2. Also called neu′ral net′. a computer model designed to simulate the behavior of biological neural networks, as in pattern recognition, language processing, and problem solving, with the goal of self-directed information processing.
[1985–90]
neural, neural network - Neural comes from Greek neuron, "nerve"; neural network can now refer to computer architecture in which processors are connected in a manner suggestive of connections between neurons.
