When the regression equation is used in predictive mode, e the difference between actual and predicted values not accounted for by the model is omitted because its expected value is zero [ 29 ].
What Is A Neural Network? The simplest definition of a neural network, more properly referred to as an 'artificial' neural network ANNis provided by the inventor of one of the first neurocomputers, Dr.
He defines a neural network as: In "Neural Network Primer: A large ANN might have hundreds or thousands of processor units, whereas a mamalian brain has billions of neurons with a corresponding increase in magnitude of their overall interaction and emergent behavior.
Although ANN researchers are generally not concerned with whether their networks accurately resemble biological systems, some have. For example, researchers have accurately simulated the function of the retina and modeled the eye rather well.
Although the mathematics involved with neural networking is not a trivial matter, a user can rather easily gain at least an operational understanding of their structure and function. The Basics of Neural Networks Neural neworks are typically organized in layers.
Layers are made up of a number of interconnected 'nodes' which contain an 'activation function'. Patterns are presented to the network via the 'input layer', which communicates to one or more 'hidden layers' where the actual processing is done via a system of weighted 'connections'.
The hidden layers then link to an 'output layer' where the answer is output as shown in the graphic below. Most ANNs contain some form of 'learning rule' which modifies the weights of the connections according to the input patterns that it is presented with.
In a sense, ANNs learn by example as do their biological counterparts; a child learns to recognize dogs from examples of dogs.
Although there are many different kinds of learning rules used by neural networks, this demonstration is concerned only with one; the delta rule.
Backpropagation is an abbreviation for the backwards propagation of error. With the delta rule, as with other types of backpropagation, 'learning' is a supervised process that occurs with each cycle or 'epoch' i. More simply, when a neural network is initially presented with a pattern it makes a random 'guess' as to what it might be.
It then sees how far its answer was from the actual one and makes an appropriate adjustment to its connection weights. More graphically, the process looks something like this: Note also, that within each hidden layer node is a sigmoidal activation function which polarizes network activity and helps it to stablize.
Backpropagation performs a gradient descent within the solution's vector space towards a 'global minimum' along the steepest vector of the error surface.
The global minimum is that theoretical solution with the lowest possible error. The error surface itself is a hyperparaboloid but is seldom 'smooth' as is depicted in the graphic below. Indeed, in most problems, the solution space is quite irregular with numerous 'pits' and 'hills' which may cause the network to settle down in a 'local minum' which is not the best overall solution.
Since the nature of the error space can not be known a prioi, neural network analysis often requires a large number of individual runs to determine the best solution. Most learning rules have built-in mathematical terms to assist in this process which control the 'speed' Beta-coefficient and the 'momentum' of the learning.
The speed of learning is actually the rate of convergence between the current solution and the global minimum.Trajectory Control With MPC For A Robot Manipülatör Using ANN Model Bekir Cirak Siirt University, Engineering Faculty, Mechanical Engineering Department, Kezer Campus, Siirt-TURKEY characteristics, process operating objectives and system and application .

The artificial neural network model exhibited excellent comparison with the experimental results. It was concluded that predicted fracture design parameters by the trained neural network model seem more reasonable compared to approximate methods.
