Implementing Neural Networks in Java
Microsoft Research | Deep Neural Networks for Speech and Image Processing: Neural networks are experiencing a renaissance, thanks to a new mathematical formulation, known as restricted Boltzmann machines, and the availability of powerful GPUs and increased processing power.
Unlike past neural networks, these new ones can have many layers and thus are called “deep neural networks”; and because they are a machine-learning technique, the technology is also known as “deep learning.”
In this talk, Alex Acero describes this new formulation and its signal-processing application in such fields as speech recognition and image recognition. In all these applications, deep neural networks have resulted in significant reductions in error rate. This success has sparked great interest from computer scientists, who are also eager to learn from neuroscientists how neurons in the brain work.

In November 1999, Enron Corp. Chief Executive Kenneth Lay and one of his senior executives, Lou Pai, set out to create the first online retailer of electricity and natural gas.
The new company, which they eventually called NewPower Holdings Inc., was aimed at allowing homeowners to shop for energy just like they bought books from Amazon.com Inc.
Like Enron's investments in industries as diverse as water treatment and broadband capacity, the NewPower venture was a high-risk gamble. Like those other projects, it contributed to the energy trader's demise.
In the first nine months of this year, NewPower lost $173 million on $245 million in revenue. Its cash had dwindled to $33 million as of Sept. 30 -- down from $180 million in December 2000. In October, the company laid...
