- any group of neurons that conduct impulses in a coordinated manner, as the assemblages of brain cells that record a visual stimulus.
- Also called neural 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.
- an interconnected system of neurons, as in the brain or other parts of the nervous system
- Also called: neural net an analogous network of electronic components, esp one in a computer designed to mimic the operation of the human brain
A computer system that is designed to mimic the human brain or some other biological system in its functioning. They were developed to deal with problems, such as pattern recognition, that the brain does well but that traditional computer systems cannot handle easily.
