ANN  Introduction
"ANNs are some kind of nonlinear statistics for amateurs". ANNs are often confused with the model of natural
brains. This is particularly unsatisfactory since artificial neural
networks exhibit no or only little similarity to natural biologic neural
networks. Moreover, there are some speculations which indicate that biologic
neural networks have a further aspect which is commonly overseen when dealing
with artificial neural networks: several workers in the field have begun
to think over some quantum effects which might occur in natural brains
.
