Neural Network Performance Shaping Preview

This is just a quick preview of what will be coming on my first Patrons-only post on my Patreon account (sometime in the next 2 weeks) – https://www.patreon.com/realAI. A Neural Network was trained on a single pass of the behavior of a cart with inverted pendulum system being controlled by a conventional controller. The PerformanceContinue reading “Neural Network Performance Shaping Preview”

Keep It Simple

Neural Networks don’t always require complex frameworks and other mathematical algorithms to support them – it’s always best to start simple and only increase the complexity when absolutely needed. A case in point is this Neural Network control system that was designed to control one specific RC helicopter airframe and yet … was able toContinue reading “Keep It Simple”

Pyrenn Levenberg-Marquardt (LM) Neural Network Training Algorithm as an Alternative to Matlab’s LM Training Algorithm

January 30, 2021 Update: If you are interested in learning the fundamentals of building Neural Network solutions then please take a look at my Patreon site. The first project will be released in approximately 2 weeks (Tier 1: source code and basic instruction – Tier 2: same as Tier 1 but with the addition ofContinue reading “Pyrenn Levenberg-Marquardt (LM) Neural Network Training Algorithm as an Alternative to Matlab’s LM Training Algorithm”

A Lesson in Perseverance: Development of a Prototype AI Neural Network Helicopter Control System

It was in September of 2001 that I was on leave-without-pay from my job at Northrop-Grumman, my wife was on doctor-ordered bed rest because our 3rd son was trying to “arrive early” (and we had two other toddler sons, ages 4 and 2), and I was working 12+ hours a day in my garage onContinue reading “A Lesson in Perseverance: Development of a Prototype AI Neural Network Helicopter Control System”

Why do I code? Insanity.

Seriously though – one has to be really into it in order to handle the frustrations associated with learning a new coding language, debugging somebody’s else code, debugging one’s own code that’s been dormant for 6 months, etc. In the past procedural programming was all I knew (consider that I graduated from Auburn University inContinue reading “Why do I code? Insanity.”
