- noun a system for processing information that is made up of interconnected elements that behave in a similar way to the neurons in the human nervous system and have the ability to learn through experience
- A network composed of many processing modules that are interconnected by elements which are programmable and that store information, so that any number of them may work together. Its goal is to mimic the action of biologic neural networks, displaying skills such as the ability to solve problems, find patterns, and learn. Its abbreviation is ANN. Also called neural network (1).
