During last week’s blog post, we had a look at artificial neural networks. These were trained using data where a developer would know the input and correct output. Unlike them the algorithms we are looking today require no supervised learning.


First, we will be taking a look at Self-Organised Maps (SOM). It use...

Case based reasoning (CBR) is a a new method which might looks quite similar to previous rule based examples we have seen previously but has a few key differences.

CBR takes past experiences and categorises them as cases and uses them to solve future problems. The scope of these cases varies from implementation...

Genetic algorithms have long been a favourite subject of mine as there’s something about computing that is inspired by biology that is quite fascinating, almost mystical. After researching the subject and understanding the procedures behind what makes the algorithm work I can see how the implementation is quite...
