Neural network technology has been a curiosity since the early days of computing. Research in the area went into a near dormant state for a number of years, but recently there has been a new increased interest in the subject. This has been due to a number of factors: interest in the military, apparent ease of implementation, and the ability of the technology to develop computers which are able to learn from experience.
This report summarizes the topic, providing the reader with an overview of the field and its potential direction. Included is an introduction to the technology and its future directions, as well as a set of examples of possible applications and potential implementation technologies.
