About the book

Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are called neural networks (NNs). They are computing systems inspired by the biological neural networks that constitute animal brains. Neural networks are widely used in different industries, from eCommerce to vehicle building. The most frequent example of the artificial neural network application is personalizing the purchaser’s experience in e-Commerce. For instance, Amazon, AliExpress, and other eCommerce platforms use AI to show the related and recommended products. There are various types of neural networks being used, including Convolutional neural networks, Recurrent neural networks, and Long and short terms memory networks. Such neural networks could be applied in various applications such as image recognition, facial recognition, speech recognition, language translation, audio generation, and time-series prediction. This book reviews the past development, new perspectives, and application of such neural networks. It could provide a great understanding of the current state of neural networks and work out the frameworks for developing neural networks in the future.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
