The recent increased activity in the area of neural networks is mainly due to their potential to mimic the computational ability of humans, in particular the ability to learn. While the ordinary computer requires precise rules to perform a given task, the neural computer has the ability to learn its own rules from examples presented to it. This gives the neural computer the potential to solve problems not possible by artificial rule-based systems.
