If you are aware of artificial intelligence chances are that you have heard about neural networks or artificial neural networks as well. This is one of the latest computer technologies that is taking over the world.

What is the artificial neural network?

An artificial neural network is one of the main tools which is used in machine learning. This particular system is based on the human brain. In other words, this system is designed to replicate the way we humans learn. It is known to consist of input and output layers along with a hidden layer as well. 

The hidden layer is comprised of units that change the input in a way so that it can be used by the output layer. This is mainly used to find complex patterns that are difficult for a human to extract. Neural learning is considered to be a powerful approach to machine learning. It allows computers to recognize speeches, understand images, translate sentences and much more.

What does the neural network consists?

A neural network is known to consist of artificial neurons in millions. These are called units which are arranged properly in layers. Each of the units is known to connect on either side of the layers. Some are called input units while others are called output units. There is an extra layer between the input and output layer called the hidden layer. This is known to occupy the maximum portion of the artificial brain.

How does the neural network learn things?

There are two ways in which information flows through a neural network. Information patterns are injected into the network when it is being trained or after the training is done. It is done through input units. This, as a result, triggers the units of the hidden layers and thus, it reaches the output units, this is known as a feedforward network.

What are the uses of artificial neural networks?

An artificial neural network is used for a variety of purposes including predicting outcomes and cluster data and classifying information. The network is known to learn from the given data and then classify the data into a predefined class. Other than that, it can also be taught to predict outcomes.

To conclude, it can be stated that computers are amazing machines. It can be used for a wide number of things. They can understand things just like humans. All this has been made possible with the help of an artificial neural network.
