E E (E SC/EGEE) 456 Introduction to Neural Networks (3)
This course is in response to students needs to learn Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) as a solving tool for difficult problems for which conventional methods are not available. The objective of this course is to give students hands-on experiences in identifying the best types of ANN, plus developing and applying ANN to solve difficult problems. Students will be introduced to a variety of ANN and will use their training skills to solve their own applications. During this course the students will develop a final project, in which they will apply ANN to widely varied problems.
I) students from E E may be interested in applying ANN to solve control problems;
II ) students from Material Sciences may be interested in applying ANN to predict the pitting corrosion of components;
III) students from Petroleum Engineering may be interested in applying ANN to characterize the life of a reservoir;
IV ) students from Agricultural Engineering may be interested in applying ANN to sort apples automatically, etc.
