Prerequisites:  

 Learning objectives: 

  To give the students the knowledge of fundamentals of neural network theory and the knowledge of topologies, learning, responses and possible practical applications of various types of these networks.  Description: 

  Artificial neuron, basis and activation functions. Classification of neural networks. Principles of individual neural networks (topology, learning, responses, typical applications): "Adaline, Perceptron, Madaline, BPN, adaptive feedforward multilayer networks, selforganizing neural networks, CPN, LVQ, RBF, RCE, Hopfield neural networks, BAM, SDM, Boltzmann machine, Neocognitron". Genetic algorithm, fuzzy systems, rough sets and neural networks.  Knowledge and skills required for the course: 

  Fundamentals of mathematical analysis and probability calculus.  Learning outcomes and competencies: 

  Students acquire knowledge of particular types of neural networks and so they will be able to design programs using these networks to solving of various practical problems.  Syllabus of lectures:
