It appears that Japan was the first to recognize the enormous potential of neural networks, and some European sources claim that this country is already working on a second-generation neurocomputer.
The drawback is that the solution offered by the neurocomputer cannot be as exact as the human-written version because, after all, it represents merely an approximation, a near-optimum solution.

A "controller" built into the neurocomputer then determined whether there was significant agreement between the three layers and, if agreement was reached, rendered a response.
Neurocomputers are a breed of rapidly developing hardware on which artificial neural networks are trained to solve problems.
The prototype chip is also a step toward neurocomputers.
It will take 10 to 20 years before the method can be used to make neurocomputers in the lab.
The two main categories consist of neurocomputers based on standard integrated circuits and ASIC.
Robert Hecht-Nielsen, inventor of one of the earliest neurocomputers, defines a neural network as a computing system made up of a number of simple, highly interconnected processing elements which process information by their dynamic state responses to external inputs (Caudill |8~).
Such hybrid machines are indeed beginning to appear under the label of neurocomputers.
