Just be advised that while a large part of the work listed in the link may still be viable, the source(s) are from almost 30 years ago, some of which the methodology or execution might have obviously changed.

I started my project back in 1984 and it is absolutely based on the Neural Network theorey as described in the article. It sounded absolutely as I had remembered learning about it.

Art, I'm glad that you figured out that the source is from that long ago since it properly places the information as dated material.

On the other side, I actually prefer this particular Neural Network model over anything that I have seen since. Sometimes the best way is put away as old fashioned while being replaced with a newer, more trendy or efficient way of getting the same job done.

The mathematics and theorey for medical CT scans was around in the late 40's and early 50's, but the computing hardware had not been developed to handle the computation of the date on such a large degree as is needed for medical CT.

I must admit that I am dated in my neural net theorey if they have come up with something different than back propagation and entrophy to get the job done. That was the theorey that I learned way back then , and I am timid to learn anything newer and "better" that may have been figured out since...

Hologenicman,

You can now change your tagline/quote from Unknown to Emerson M. Pugh.
( I really dislike unknowns and I guess that is what fuels my quest for knowledge on various things in life and in my life).

This is what I've found merely for informational purposes:
If the human brain were so simple that we could understand it, we would be so simple that we couldn't. - Emerson M Pugh.

Born: 1 May 1929

Dr. Emerson Pugh is the author or co-author of a college physics text and several books on the history of IBM and the information processing industry. After receiving his Ph.D. in physics from the Carnegie Institute of Technology in 1956, Dr. Pugh worked for IBM for 35 years in a variety of capacities, including research scientist, product development manager, and corporate executive.

Dr. Pugh is a Fellow of the IEEE, the American Physical Society, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He was IEEE president in 1989.

Emerson served on the IEEE History Committee, and in 2009, he created the STARS program with the IEEE History Center, an online compendium of invited, peer-reviewed articles on the history of major developments in electrical and computer science and technology.

Thanks, Art.

I'll get that changed post haste.
