A neural network consists of a set of nodes linked together in a network. Each node receives input from a set of nodes and sends activation as output to another set of nodes. Some inputs could come immediately from sensors. Some outputs Artificial Life and Real World Computing 21 are linked with actuators. The links between nodes are weighted. When the sum of the weighted inputs to a node exceeds a threshold, activation propagates to the output nodes. There are many variants of neural networks, depending on the type of propagation and the adaptation mechanism that is used for changing the weights [15].
