3 Main Features of Neural Networks: Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) learn by experience rather than by modelling or programming. ANN architectures are distributed, inherently parallel and potentially real time. They have the ability to generalize. They do not require a prior understanding of the process or phenomenon being studied. They can form arbitrary continuous non-linear mappings. They are robust to noisy data. VLSI implementation is easy

5 limitations Conventional neural networks are black box models. Tools for analysis and model validation are not well established. An intelligent machine can only solve some specific problem for which it is trained. Human brain is very complex and cannot be fully simulated with present computing power. An artificial neural network does not have capability of human brain. Issue: What is the difference between human brain neurons and other animal brain neurons?
6 Definition: A universal definition of ANNs is not available, however, the following definition summarizes the basic features of an ANN: Artificial Neural Networks, also called Neurocomputing or Parallel Distributed Processes (PDP) or connectionist networks or simply neural networks are interconnected assemblies of simple processing elements, called neurons, units or nodes, whose functionality is loosely based on the biological neuron. The processing ability of the network is stored in the inter-unit connection strength, or weights, obtained by a process of adaptation to, or learning from a set of training patterns.
7 Biological Neuron: A simplified view of a biological (real) neuron
8 Examples of some real neurons
9 Image of the vertical organization of neurons in the primary visual cortex
10 Soma or Cell Body The central part of a neuron is called the soma or cell body which contains the nucleus and the protein synthesis machinery. The size of soma of a typical neuron is about 10 to 80 m. Almost all the logical functions are realized in this part of a neuron.
11 The Dendrites The dendrites represent a highly branching tree of fibers and are attached to the soma. The word dendrite has been taken from the Greek word dendro which means tree. Dendrites connect the neuron to a set of other neurons. Dendrites either receive inputs from other neurons or connect other dendrites to the synaptic outputs.
12 The Axon It is a long tubular fiber which divides itself into a number of branches towards its end. Its length can be from 100 m to 1 m. The function of an axon is to transmit the generated neural activity to other neurons or to muscle fibers. In other words, it is output channel of the neuron. The point where the axon is connected to its cell body is called the Hillock zone.
13 Synapses The junction at which a signal is passed from one neuron to the next is called a synapse (from the Greek verb to join). It has a button like shape with diameter around 1 m. Usually a synapse is not a physical connection (the axon and the dendrite do not touch) but there is a gap called the synaptic cleft that is normally between 200Å to 500Å (1Å = m). The strength of synaptic connection between neurons can be chemically altered by the brain in response to favorable and unfavorable stimuli in such a way as to adapt the organism to function optimally within its environment.
14 “The nerve fibre is clearly a signalling mechanism of limited scope. It can only transmit a succession of brief explosive waves, and the message can only be varied by changes in the frequency and in the total number of these waves. … But this limitation is really a small matter, for in the body the nervous units do not act in isolation as they do in our experiments. A sensory stimulus will usually affect a number of receptor organs, and its result will depend on the composite message in many nerve fibres.” Lord Adrian, Nobel Acceptance Speech, 1932.
15 We now know it’s not quite that simple Single neurons are highly complex electrochemical devices Single neurons are highly complex electrochemical devices Synaptically connected networks are only part of the story Synaptically connected networks are only part of the story Many forms of interneuron communication now known – acting over many different spatial and temporal scales Many forms of interneuron communication now known – acting over many different spatial and temporal scales
16 Single neuron activity Membrane potential is the voltage difference between a neuron and its surroundings (0 mV) Cell 0 Mv Membrane potential
17 Single neuron activity If you measure the membrane potential of a neuron and print it out on the screen, it looks like: spike
18 Single neuron activity A spike is generated when the membrane potential is greater than its threshold
19 Abstraction So we can forget all sub-threshold activity and concentrate on spikes (action potentials), which are the signals sent to other neurons Spikes
20 Only spikes are important since other neurons receive them (signals) Neurons communicate with spikes Information is coded by spikes So if we can manage to measure the spiking time, we decipher how the brain works ….
21 Again its not quite that simple spiking time in the cortex is random
22 With identical input for the identical neuron spike patterns are similar, but not identical
23 Recording from a real neuron: membrane potential
24 Single spiking time is meaningless To extract useful information, we have to average to obtain the firing rate r for a group of neurons in a local circuit where neuron codes the same information over a time window Local circuit = Time window = 1 sec r = Hz
25 So we can have a network of these local groups w 1: synaptic strength wnwn r1r1 rnrn Hence we have firing rate of a group of neurons
26 r i is the firing rate of input local circuit The neurons at output local circuits receive signals in the form The output firing rate of the output local circuit is then given by R where f is the activation function, generally a Sigmoidal function of some sort w i weight, (synaptic strength) measuring the strength of the interaction between neurons.
27 Artificial Neural networks Local circuits (average to get firing rates) Single neuron (send out spikes)
28 Is it possible to simulate human brain? No, with present computing power is it almost impossible to simulate a full behavior of human brain. Reasons: It is estimated that the human cerebral cortex contains 100 billion neurons. Each neuron has as many as 1000 dendrites and, hence within the cerebral cortex there are approximately 100,000 billion synapses.

30 Model of a single artificial neuron w2w2 w1w1 wpwp f x1x1 x 2 Activation function xpxp y w0w0 x0x0 For simplicity, the threshold contribution b may be treated as an extra input to the neuron, as shown below, where x 0 = 1, w 0 = b. In this case
31 Activation Functions: The activation function of a neuron, also known as transfer function, may be linear or non-linear. A particular activation function is chosen to satisfy some specification of the problem that the neuron is attempting to solve. A variety of activation functions have been proposed. Some of these are discussed below:
32 (a) The hard limit activation function: This activation function sets the output of the neuron to 0 if the function argument is less than 0, or 1 if its argument is greater than or equal to 0. (see figure below). This function is generally used to create neurons that classify inputs into two distinct classes. 0 1
33 Example 1: The input to a neuron is 3, and its weight is 1.8. (a) What is the net input to the activation function? (a) What is the net input to the activation function? (b) What is the output of the neuron if it has the hard limit transfer function? (b) What is the output of the neuron if it has the hard limit transfer function?Solution: (a) Net input = u = 1.8 3 = 5.4 (b) Neuron output = f(u) = 1.
34 Example 2: Repeat example 1 if its bias is (i) –2 (ii) –6 (i) –2 (ii) –6 Solution: (a) net input = u = (1.8 3) + (-2) = 5.4 – 2 = 3.4 = 5.4 – 2 = 3.4 output = f(u) = 1.0 output = f(u) = 1.0 (b) net input = u = (1.8 3) + (-6) (b) net input = u = (1.8 3) + (-6) = 5.4 – 6 = -0.6 = 5.4 – 6 = -0.6 output = 0. output = 0.
35 Example 3: Given a two input neuron with the following parameters: b = 1.4, W = [ ] and P = [-3 5], calculate the neuron output for the hard limit transfer function. Solution: net input to the activation function = Neuron output = f(u) = 1.0 Neuron output = f(u) = 1.0
36 (b) Symmetrical hard limit: This activation function is defined as follows: y = -1 u < 0 y = -1 u < 0 y = +1 u 0 y = +1 u 0 Where u is the net input and y is the output of the function (see figure below): 0 1 y u0
37 Example 4: Given a two output neuron with the following parameters: b = 1.2, W = [3 2], and p = [-5 6]. Calculate the neuron output for the symmetrical hard limit activation function. Solution: Output = y = f(u) = -1
38 (c) Linear activation function: The output of a linear activation function is equal to its input: y = u as shown in the following figure: as shown in the following figure: 0 0 u y
39 (d) The log-sigmoid activation function: This activation function takes the input (which may have any value between plus and minus infinity) and squashes the output into the range 0 to 1, according to the expression: A plot of this function is given below: 0u 0 1
40 Example 5: Repeat example 2 for a log- sigmoid activation function. Solution: (a) net input = u = 3.4 output = f(u) = 1/(1 + e -3.4 ) = output = f(u) = 1/(1 + e -3.4 ) = (b) net input u = -0.6 output = f(u) = 1/(1 + e 0.6 ) = output = f(u) = 1/(1 + e 0.6 ) = Example 6: Repeat example 3 for a log sigmoid activation function. Solution: output = 1
41 (e) Hyperbolic Tangent Sigmoid: This activation function is shown in the following figure and is defined mathematically as follows: 0 0 1
42 Other choices of activation functions 0 +1 Saturation Limiter Gaussian function Schmitt trigger +1 and many more
43 Artificial Neural Network (ANN) architectures: Connecting several neurons in some specific manner yields an artificial neural network. The architecture of an ANN defines the network structure, that is the number of neurons in the network and their interconnectivity. In a typical ANN architecture, the artificial neurons are connected in layers and they operate in parallel. The weights or the strength of connection between the neurons are adapted during use to yield good performance. Each ANN architecture has its own learning rule.
