This book is for Java developers with basic Java programming knowledge. No previous knowledge of neural networks is required as this book covers the concepts from scratch.
Vast quantities of data are produced every second. In this context, neural networks become a powerful technique to extract useful knowledge from large amounts of raw, seemingly unrelated data. One of the most preferred languages for neural network programming is Java as it is easier to write code using it, and most of the most popular neural network packages around already exist for Java. This makes it a versatile programming language for neural networks.
This book gives you a complete walkthrough of the process of developing basic to advanced practical examples based on neural networks with Java.
You will first learn the basics of neural networks and their process of learning. We then focus on what Perceptrons are and their features. Next, you will implement self-organizing maps using the concepts you’ve learned. Furthermore, you will learn about some of the applications that are presented in this book such as weather forecasting, disease diagnosis, customer profiling, and characters recognition (OCR). Finally, you will learn methods to optimize and adapt neural networks in real time.
All the examples generated in the book are provided in the form of illustrative source code, which merges object-oriented programming (OOP) concepts and neural network features to enhance your learning experience.
Alan M.F. Souza is computer engineer from Instituto de Estudos Superiores da Amazônia (IESAM). He holds a post-graduate degree in project management software and a master's degree in industrial processes (applied computing) from Universidade Federal do Pará (UFPA). He has been working with neural networks since 2009 and has worked with IT Brazilian companies developing in Java, PHP, SQL, and other programming languages since 2006. He is passionate about programming and computational intelligence. Currently, he is a professor at Universidade da Amazônia (UNAMA) and a PhD candidate at UFPA.
Fábio M. Soares holds a master's degree in applied computing from UFPA and is currently a PhD candidate at the same university. He has been designing neural network solutions since 2004 and has developed applications with this technique in several fields, ranging from telecommunications to chemistry process modeling, and his research topics cover supervised learning for data-driven modeling.
He is also self-employed, offering services such as IT infrastructure management as well as database administration to a number of small- and medium-sized companies in northern Brazil. In the past, he has worked for big companies such as Albras, one of the most important aluminium smelters in the world, and Eletronorte, a great power supplier in Brazil. He also has experience as a lecturer, having worked at the Federal Rural University of Amazon and as a Faculty of Castanhal, both in the state of Pará, teaching subjects involving programming and artificial intelligence.
He has published a number of works, many of them available in English, all including the topics of artificial intelligence applied to some problem. His publications include conference proceedings, such as the TMS (The Minerals Metals and Materials Society), Light Metals and the Intelligent Data Engineering and Automated Learning. He has also has published two book chapters for Intech.
