SNNS - The Swedish Neural Network Society
The information about SNNS in the World Wide Web currently consists of:
August 25 1992
the ANN working group, Artificial Neural Network
SNNS, The Swedish Neural Network Society
In Swedish industry, universities and technical institutes there is an
increasing interest for Artificial Neural Networks, ANN. Too meet a
need for exchange of information, knowledge and experience a working
group for ANN was formed June 7 1991. As a first measure the ANN
working group took the initiative to establish SNNS, the Swedish
Neural Network Society.
An artificial neural net (ANN) is a network of a great number of
simple, summing processors working in parallel and communicating via
modifiable, weighted couplings. ANN-based techniques are, for example,
used for adaptive pattern recognition and guidance. The basic
structure and function in ANN is inspired by analogies with biological
(neural) information processing.
Examples of alternative terms with the same or similar meaning as the
term artificial neural nets are: neural nets; artificial nervous
systems; neoroidal or neuromorphic systems; parallel distributed
systems (PDP); `connectionist' systems or associative nets.
To increase the knowledge about ANN in Swedish industry so that ANN
early will be applied for purposes suitable for ANN. Effective use of
ANN aims at improving the competitiveness of the Swedish trade and
The working group intends to:
Examples of activities are:
- Organizing seminars with prominent representatives from the field
- Upholding an electronic conference net
- Spreading information in other ways, e g through articles and reports
- Organizing joint study visits
STATUTES FOR THE WORKING GROUP FOR ANN
The working group consists of representatives for Swedish engineering
industry and technical institutes, universities and/or research
institutes. The intention is that a majority of its participants shall
be from the industry.
The working group selects members upon recommendations.
The working group appoints chairperson and secretary. They are
appointed for one calendar year at a time.
The working group handles no economy. The participants put up their
business time and act as hosts, an honor circulating among the
The working group meets about 5 times per year.
The working group organizes SNNS annual meeting. This is preferably
done in connection with some conference or seminar.
STATUTES FOR SNNS, THE SWEDISH NEURAL NETWORK SOCIETY
The Swedish Neural Network Society, SNNS, is an interest group. Anyone
sending in an application to the working group for ANN can become a
member in SNNS. Member in SNNS is obliged to report address changes
and intentions not to remain a member.
The board of SNNS is the working group for ANN. The working group
assumes the following tasks:
- Maintaining current membership register
- Disseminating information in SNNS area of interest
- Organizing seminars/conferences
- Organize annual meetings.
SNNS annual meeting approves the board for one year at a time and
proposes changes in objectives and activities.
