OLSOFT Neural Network Library

Category Intelligent Software>Neural Network Systems/Tools

Abstract OLSOFT Neural Network Library is the class to create, learn and use Back Propagation neural networks (NNs) and SOFM (Self-Organizing Feature Map).

The library makes integration of neural networks’ functionality into your own applications easy and seamless. It enables your programs to handle data analysis, classification and forecasting needs.

The advanced learning and training capacities of OLSOFT Neural Network library allows you to use it for solving various needs and performing data mining, ‘clusterization tasks’ in a variety of fields, such as finance, science, education, medicine, sport betting, etc.

OLSOFT Neural Network library is a proven technology tool that is implemented in NeuroXL products, namely ‘NeuroXL Clusterizer’ (see G6G Abstract Number 20116R) and ‘NeuroXL Predictor’ products.

This Neural Network Library is a fully self-contained Component Object Model (COM) ActiveX control written with Visual C++ 6.0 and Active Template Library (ATL).

There are No external dependencies required for its operation such as other Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs).

Note that all data types are specific to Visual Basic (VB) 6. For Visual Basic. NET some data types will differ.

A ‘reference manual’ accompanies the OLSOFT Neural Network Library with examples and recommendations on how to use the library.

Main features of the OLSOFT Neural Network Library:

1) The NN Library is written as a COM object that may be used inside any application.

2) The NN Library is fast because it is written in C++.

3) Supports ‘multilayer artificial neural networks’ (Back Propagation and SOFM).

4) Supports ‘Forward Propagation Network’ with user defined synapses (use of “offset input” is supported).

5) Offers ‘Back Propagation Network’ training with adjustable training parameters.

6) Provides SOFM network support (Euclid distance and the Scalar Vector Multiplication algorithm).

7) Several different activation functions are implemented (zero-threshold, hyperbolic tangens, and exponent sigmoid).

8) It is possible to save the neural network (NN) to a ‘text file’ and restore it later for use or further training.

9) Offers direct and simple use in VB 6 and Visual Basic Applications (VBA) applications.

10) You can use it in any ‘programming language’ as a generic COM component.

OLSOFT Neural Network Library Advantages:

1) Easy to learn and use.

2) No prior knowledge of ‘neural networks’ required.

3) Integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Excel.

4) Provides proven neural network (NN) technology for highly accurate classification.

5) Detects relationships and trends in data that traditional methods overlook.

6) One of the lowest cost neural networks (NN) ‘classification products’ on the market.

OLSOFT Neural Network Library Applications:

1) Credit scoring;

2) Bond ratings;

3) Mortgage risk analysis;

4) ‘Protein sequencing’;

5) Weather pattern classification;

6) Air quality analysis;

7) Insect gender determination;

8) Classification of EEG (electroencephalography) data for patients with sleep disorders;

9) ‘Tumor classification’ in breast cancer patients;

10) Identification of ‘genome types’;

11) Classification of sales prospects; and

12) Direct mail optimization.

Note: 20-day trial version of the OLSOFT Neural Network Library is available.
