Elements of Artificial Neural Networks, by Mehrotra,
Mohan, and Ranka, MIT Press, 1997.
• Prerequisites:
– CMSC341 (or experience in other programming languages)
– Knowledge in algorithms and AI is helpful
– Some knowledge in linear algebra/matrix and differential
equations
– Biology/psychology/neural science/cognitive science not
required
Course Overview
• Grading
– 2 projects
– 2 exam
– Project 3
20% each
30% each (additional questions for 675
students)
20% for 675 students only
• Academic dishonesty
– UMBC Student Honor Code (from Student Handbook)
“… Cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, and helping others to
commit these acts are all forms of academic dishonesty, ...
Academic misconduct could result in disciplinary action that
may include, but is not limited to, suspension or dismissal…”
Course Overview
• Highlights
– Central theme borrowed from networks of neurons in
animal nerve systems
– An alternative approach to computational models for
problem solving (in contrast to algorithmic, Von
Neumann approach)
– Multi-disciplinary
• Computer science
• Mathematics/statistics/physics
• Neural science (medicine, zoology, biology)
• Cognitive science/psychology
• Engineering
Course Overview
• Emphasis of this course:
– Computational aspects of NN
• Network structures
• Computation and learning methods
– Not on modeling of
• Biological nerve systems and their functions
