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.

The majority of previous studies used logistic regression analysis and several statistical tools for analyzing the data and some study, compared neural networks with conventional statistical tools to evaluate the job satisfaction attributes, but this is a study which uses neural network to find out the normalized importance of individual job satisfiers of employees towards work commitment and more specifically this study uses Multilayer Perceptron neural network model which is more advantageous than some of the other statistical tools like logistic regression analysis (Huang 2012).
