Artificial Neural Networks: Basic Concepts

Understanding and Applying Artificial Neural Networks : Engineering Perspective
Emerald | Artificial neural

Lasts week (15th November to 19th November), NITTTR (National Institute of Technical Teachers Training and Research) had organized a course on Artificial Neural Networks at Government College Of Engineering – Farmagudi, Goa. I was appointed as course faculty for this event.

Personally, I do not believe in concept of teaching. Humans are smart and intelligent animals and as such, they are capable of learning new things themselves based on their experience and observations. Thus, rather than providing a training, I preferred sharing my experience and knowledge on ANN with the members attending the course.

Considering the fact that this event was organized for staff of engineering colleges, the “Joint – Discussion” was titled, “Engineering Solutions With Artificial Intelligence Using A System Popularized As Artificial Neural Networks“.

Generally, we discuss Artificial Neural Networks either in theoretical perspective or in terms of purely scientific applications. However, the world of practical engineering is always different from theoretical or purely scientific perspective. The same applies to applications of ANN in perspective of modern digital engineering.

In this joint discussion, we spent first two days trying to understand the concept of artificial neural networks. To understand it practically, demonstrations were provided using the examples developed in JRuby. The code written for this purpose is now available on GitHub (The link is provided at the end of this post).

I would be happy to, but someone asked me that before, and when I answered, it was flagged. I am not sure, but I think that stock traders don't like Forex trading.
I am not sure why that is. The Forex market is much bigger, and it is recession proof. There will always be banks and businesses trading money. Chrysler, last year, made more money trading Forex than they did selling vehicles. This market is also less risky, with enormous liquidity, and no slippage. Forex has low transaction costs, much higher leverage, and low account minimums.
I just think you need to know what you are doing, and for most of us, it takes education. I didn't go and work in a hospital until I went to nursing school, and prepared myself. I wouldn't risk my money until I learned how to trade it....

It's true

I was just flipping through and noticed your post. Yes, it is true about Forex. The absolute best way to get started is go to the Forex website and download the trial version of their program. It works in real time with a start of $10000 dream cash. You get to invest it how you like and see the results just like real money. The trial version is good for 30 days I think.
If I were in your shoes and never tried Forex, I would invest time into your local bookstore and read the most up-to-date books on Forex, and trading. If you jump into it both feet first and don't know what you're doing, you'll probably lose the farm.
I must also say that the trading books seem very confusing at first if you've never Forex'd before. Just read the book in it's entirety. Try the trial period...

A lot of people have said what they do here

I don't know what you're talking about.
Read the threads. There are tons of folks who have said exactly what type of work they do from home.
I am a marketing consultant specializing in Internet Marketing education and training. I also dabble in high-return investing (DaySurfing) and currency trading, like ecurrency exchange and Forex.
There are also lots of people here who are representatives for different companies who sell various products online and off. They usually include their referral links, so it's easy to find those people and exactly what they're selling.
There's a guy trying to start a motorcycle repair business from home. People who transcribe things for a living. Others who import/export, or sell stuff on eBay.
There are several artists...

I am trading Forex, from the computer at my home. I am making several thousand a week, but I am only trading one lot. Several friends who have more money than I are trading more lots, and are making way more money than I.
It is good for me, and I am building my account, and when I have more money, I will trade more lots.
It is not something you can just go and do, you have to learn about it, or you will waste your time and your money.
I studied for about six weeks, and during that time, I practiced on a demo account.
I took live classes online, and they were great. You can take them as many times as you like. I paid $2000 for the beginners and advanced classes, but you can start with $995 for the beginners class. I figured it is less than I would spend for a...

FOREX signals svc that works GREAT 4 me but..???

Hey.. james here.. ive been trading now primarily in forex for about 3 1/2 years.. and for the past 6 months ive been using a signals service that has worked incredibly well for me, especially when compared to 2 other bogus services ive tried.. i've made a pretty significant amount of money with's spot on accurate probably 95% of the time... so I trust the integrity of these people.. but my question is, im thinking about upgrading my membership to the diamond edition, which enables me to use a new autotrade service they are now offering, which basically supposedly takes all these accurate signals and trades them for me all automatically, like a robot.. this carries a monthly membership fee of of just under 100 dollars... the only reason i havent done it yet is because i know...
