Title: Artificial neural networks – a survey about hardware and software use
Authors: Dario Baptista , Filipe Freitas , Morgado Dias , Rita Vasconcelos
Abstract: Artificial Neural Networks have been widely used over three decades. During this period many hardware and software solutions have been developed and today a new user entering the field can make a fast trial to this artificial intelligence solution with commercial software and hardware, instead of developing a solution from scratch and saving a lot of time. This work aims at helping the new and the experienced user even further by sharing the Artificial Neural Network experience in software and hardware, collected through a survey questionnaire about present and past used solutions of software and hardware and prospects for the development of application areas. To further enlighten the reader an analysis with Logistic Regression is performed on the obtained results to extract additional details about the answers obtained from the Artificial Neural Network community.
