Neural networks can teach themselves how to perform a task after being given basic instructions.

Editor’s note: One of the central technologies of artificial intelligence is neural networks. In this interview, Tam Nguyen, a professor of computer science at the University of Dayton, explains how neural networks, programs in which a series of algorithms try to simulate the human brain work.

What are some examples of neural networks that are familiar to most people?

There are many applications of neural networks. One common example is your smartphone camera’s ability to recognize faces.

Driverless cars are equipped with multiple cameras which try to recognize other vehicles, traffic signs and pedestrians by using neural networks, and turn or adjust their speed accordingly.

Neural networks are also behind the text suggestions you see while writing texts or emails, and even in the translations tools available online.
