THE MAIN PROPERTY OF ANN IS ITS CAPABILITY TO LEARN
The learning is performed with the help of teacher.
The correct target output values are known for each input pattern
self organizing in which exact clusters are formed by discovering similarities and dissimilarities among the objects
learning with a critic as opposed to learning with a teacher
Technique to deal with imprecision and information granularity
Widely used in non-linear, time varying, ill-defined systems, complex systems like
