Paper Abstract

This paper promotes and examines the use of neural networks as components. The properties of components desirable for constructing large flexible systems are listed. Some examples of such systems are examined. Neural networks are shown to have these desirable properties. Those characteristics of individual neural network algorithms relevant to system design are described and then examined for some well-known algorithms. The process of designing a neural network system for a particular task is given as an example. Finally, directions for future research are given.
