Natural Brains
Beginners in the field often think that artificial neural networks resemble natural brains. However, there is little similarity between natural brains and the neural networks which are used for data analysis. They are called "neural networks," because the idea to build neural networks stems from natural neural systems. However, when processing data, this origin is not relevant. In fact neural networks have been designed to follow two main research strains:
When using neural networks for data processing, they are merely employed as statistical tools. Their biological roots can be ignored, because biological plausibility is not relevant.
