Spiking Neural Network

A spiking neural network or SNN is a type of neural network designed to simulate the effects of spiking neurons in organic physiology. They incorporate the concept of time.

That is to say, the artificial ?neurons? or nodes in the neural network do not fire at each cycle through the structure, they fire some time after that, when a specific delay value is reached. This radically increases the complexity of a neural network, without increasing its size.

Neurons in the brain communicate by short electrical pulses, the so-called action potentials or spikes. How can we understand the process of spike generation? How can we understand information transmission by neurons? What happens if thousands of neurons are coupled together in a seemingly random network? How does the network connectivity determine the activity patterns?

A Modular Framework for Artificial Intelligence Based on Stimulus Response Directives
Neural networks are one of the best techniques available, for modelling a mind. However, they are also processing-intensive, and somewhat uncontrollable at their current technological level. This article concentrates on using directive sets, rather than neural nets, to create realistic, task driven behaviour.
