Artificial neural network

An artificial neural network (ANN) or commonly just neural network (NN) is an interconnected group of artificial neurons that uses a mathematical model or computational model for information processing based on a connectionist approach to computation.

In most cases an ANN is an adaptive system that changes its structure based on external or internal information that flows through the network.
