St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) January 28, 2009
Heaton Research introduced two new online video-based courses today. The Introduction to Neural Networks for Java and Introduction to Neural Networks for C# courses are now open for enrollment. These courses are offered free to the public. Programming experience in Java or C# is suggested.
Neural networks are computer-based simulations of the human brain, which allow computers to exhibit human-like capabilities. Neural networks are used for weather prediction, video games, stock market simulations, and other tasks normally beyond the reach of a traditional computer program.
These courses are taught by Jeff Heaton, an artificial intelligence researcher and former college instructor. The courses are presented in fifteen weekly units consisting of a 20-30 minute video supplemented with additional materials, assignments, and an online forum.
