as Software Model-Builder
By David O. Hallowell
One branch of computational intelligence tools, neural networks, is worth surveying as part of the extended data mining and modeling toolkit. Neural networks models can be helpful when a) The form of a model is not known and may be complex (nonlinear, higher order terms, etc.), and b) There is value in a black box transfer function that can be updated on the fly. The article provides an example to illustrate a practical application of neural network software.
