NeuralWorks Professional II/PLUS
NeuralWorks® Professional II/PLUS is the world standard for comprehensive neural network development environments. Professional II/PLUS is available for UNIX, Linux, and Windows operating systems on a variety of hardware platforms; data and network files are fully interchangeable. The Professional II/PLUS package contains comprehensive documentation that address the entire neural network development and deployment process, including a tutorial, a guide to neural computing, standard and advanced reference manuals, and platform-specific installation and user guides.
NeuralWare's proprietary InstaNet facility allows quick generation of a neural network based on any one of 28 standard neural network architectures described in neural network literature. After a network is created, all parameters associated with it can be directly modified to more closely reflect the problem domain. Professional II/PLUS includes advanced features such as performance measure-based methods to inhibit over-fitting; automatic optimization of hidden layer size and the ability to prune hidden units; and an Explain facility that indicates which network inputs most influence network outputs.
In addition to a wide variety of built-in diagnostic monitoring tools, Professional II/PLUS provides an interface through which user-written programs can supply input data and process neural network outputs. The Designer Pack and User Defined Neuro-Dynamics add-on packages offer even more custom programming flexibility.
NeuralWorks Professional II/PLUS Features
NeuralWorks is a multi-paradigm neural network prototyping and development tool. Researchers, scientists, analysts and engineers can design, build, train, test and deploy neural networks to solve complex real-world problems. Dozens of well-known, built-in network types can be quickly generated. Numerous enhancements to back-propagation and other networks are included. Networks are displayed graphically in monochrome or full color. PEs and connections can be easily added or deleted. Dozens of math functions and learning rules can be mixed and matched.
You can create your own network types by writing customized script files. By invoking one of these script files, you can have a custom network created on the screen in seconds. You can also customize the flow of data through the network with a user-defined control strategy. Every paradigm included with the product is accompanied by the script file and control strategy as an example of how to create the network type.
Professional II/PLUS users can also build custom networks using the tools in the object palette.
Powerful diagnostic capabilities allow you to monitor weights, errors, activations and more with pre-built and custom on-screen graphic displays. This diagnostic data can also be sent to a file or a user program. You can use the diagnostic data to adjust parameters within a network to improve learning.
Data for networks can be supplied from the keyboard or an ASCII file. The data file format is compatible with spreadsheet and database files. An extensive data pre-processing capability is included. You can also design a custom user interface in C (numerous examples with source code are included). This custom user interface can query a user, read from a file or port and display results using NeuralWorks graphics calls.
