This lecture is part of the intelligent systems track of the master programme "Computer Science".



Content of the Lecture:

The lecture gives an overview over the most important technical neural networks and neural paradigms.

The following topics will be explained in detail: Perceptron, multi-layer perceptron (MLP), radial-basis function nets (RBF), Hopfield nets, self organizing feature maps (SOMS, Kohonen), adaptive resonance theory (ART), learning vector quantization, recurrent networks, back-propagation of error, reinforcement learning, Q-learning, support vector machines (SVM), Neocognitron.

In addition exemplary applications of neural nets will be presented and discussed: function approximation, prediction, quality control, image processing, speech processing, action planning, control of technical processes and robots.
Implementation of neural networks in hardware and software: tools, simulators, analog and digital neural hardware.
