Question by abhinav.nishant: I want ti learn AI/ neural network. Can any one suggest how and where to start?
Any books , websites or does any one know someone who would be willing to be a mentor for me..
well i am very much good with c/c++ and other lang as well like java n all(bachelors in engg with IT as major)
Answer by butchtroll
Hmm… This has held some of my interest, consider a real neural network, a network of signal carriers using electrical impulses for transmission of information along individual nerves(neurons) and chemical transmitters from nerve to nerve (synapses). Nerves act as “majority gates” each neuron may receive many signals on its inputs(axons) the majority input determines the neurons signal on its output(dendrite). As a signal travels from neuron to neuron the chemicals called neurotransmitters are somewhat depleted leaving somewhat of a ghost image of the message(s) in the neural network, the support system for the neural network will enhance the synapse if depletion continues(short term memory), if this is not sufficient, non-committed neurons are recruited to help handle the messages and if necessary new neural paths are created(long term memory). It has been difficult for man to duplicate this system digitally, however I think it might just be possible that he has built such a network inadvertently! The internet behaves in a fashion very similar to a neural network, as do many other information systems. I believe your best bet to learn more about AI is to search for these types of systems, learn more about them, learn more about biological neural systems, compare them and see where it leads you.
Please keep in touch and let me know what you discover, I do have an interest.

Question by lostinlife: Suggest Project to do in Artificial Intellegence ( Neural Network, expert system etc)?
I have to do a project for my Artificial Intellegence class…..i am totally new to this field….
the project should be do able not too complex or hi-fi.
any suggestion regarding this will be great help.
i am thinking of doing project either in neural network or expert system….
Answer by just “JR”
In my early years… (20 years ago?)…
I did a simple project on neural networks:
- Make hard wood numbers 0-9, same height.
- Make a square sensor array, say, 10×10
- Connect each sensor to an input of a neural network
- Drop a number on the sensor: the shadow it makes gives 100 input values to the NN.
- TEACH the neural network to recognise the “right” number.
- The more you “teach” it, the better it becomes (even when you drop the number upside down!)
Worked well! and, believe me, it is not “that” simple…
(Now, of course, we use image analysis…)
