Sam Hill: Kohonen Neural Network Simulation|
The applet below is a demonstration of how the Kohonen Neural Network operates.
The Kohonen Neural Network is a developemnt of the "percepton" network developed by Rosenblatt in 1962.Both networks make use of artificial neurons which are electrical simulations of biological ones - the core component of a brain. These artificial neurons are mathematical abstractions and aim to emulate the functionality of the neurons through computational code, this artificial abstraction is often termed neuro-computing, this term is used since neuro-computing is fundamentally different to digital computing.
Neurons are what makes a brain a much more powerful processor than a computer, this is because by careful organisation of the neurons, the brain can operate much more efficiently than the most powerful of today’s computers. A neuron on its own is an incredibly simple object. It is made up of an input, and operator and an output in its basic form.
