Neural networks research led by UD’s Tanner wins outstanding paper award

A paper co-authored by UD’s Herbert Tanner has been voted the 2011 Outstanding Paper for the International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics.

1:25 p.m., Jan. 11, 2012–A paper co-authored by Herbert Tanner, assistant professor ofmechanical engineering at the University of Delaware, has been voted the 2011 Outstanding Paper for the International Journal of Intelligent Computing and Cybernetics (IJICC).

The invited paper documents work done by Tanner and two of his students on the design of inexpensive, efficient spatially distributed cellular neural networks (CNN).

Neural networks have been used in classification of shapes and patterns for decades, said Tanner. Mathematical algorithms enable the systems to identify predetermined objects, shapes or patterns in a given environment. The ultimate goal is to enable machines to automatically pick out patterns in the data collected by sensors, suggesting the existence of an object or physical process that is obscured.
