Hi,

can anyone recommend me good Neural Networks book? I need book, that explains all the things in simple, not very theoreticaly complicated, way. Also i would be very happy if book gives some advices and ideas on how to implement learning algorythms, perceptron, multi-layeres perceptron and so on. It doesnt have to be book, some internet articles could be ok as well.

Thanks a lot for any replies.

The most simple book I've seen on this topic must have been Mat Buckland's AI Techniques for Game Programming

You can start by giving his website a look: http://www.ai-junkie.com/ann/evolved/nnt1.html

Hope this helps

Out of curiosity, is there a particular reason why you've chosen neural nets?

Probably because the name sounds cool, like genetic algorithms :)

There is plenty of information, examples and tutorials (for free) on the web to google for. Maybe you want to do that before buying a book? If only to be able to tell the difference between an useful book and one that isn't.

Games don't need neural networks (at least in Artificial Intelligence). However, Artificial intelligence for any purpose is nevertheless interesting. I'm actually interested in what else 'neural networks' could be used for in a game... or application.
