Neural networks mimic the basic structures used in the brain for information processing and have obvious applications in advanced robotics, pattern recognition and devices that learn by experience. The technology is a rapidly developing area of advanced computing, offering solutions for many information processing tasks in industry. Project ANNIE (Applications of Neural Networks for Industry in Europe) was established in 1988 to investigate the performance of neural networks in a selection of applications including: (i) pattern recognition in inspection and non-destructive testing; (ii) control systems for collision avoidance and path planning, for autonomous vehicles; (iii) optimisation of airline crew scheduling. This handbook summarises the aims and findings of the programme and offers some indicators to future directions in this field.
