1.a) Explain McCulloch-Pitts Model.
b) Discuss the characteristics of Artificial Neural Networks.
2.a) Distinguish Training and Learning.
b) How do neurons transfer unbounded inputs to bonded outputs?
3. Illustrate learning process in a Back Propagation Neural Network
to get output as [0.2 0.4 0.6] from inputs (0.1 0.2 0.3). Assume
the network has one hidden layer. Apply the concept of
Momentum. Perform three iterations.
4.a) What is Associative memory? Explain with reference to human
b) Explain the architecture of Hopfield network.
5.a) What is stability-plasticity dilemma? Explain how it is overcome in
b) Discuss any two applications of LVQ.
6.a) Explain fuzzy sets as points in hypercube. Discuss the significance
of vertices and center.
b) Explain C-means clustering algorithm.
7.a) Consider three fuzzy sets in the ranges 0-5, 2.5-7.5, 5-10, with 1st
set and 3rd sets as trapezoidal membership functions and the 2nd
as triangular membership function. Fuzzify the crisp values
1,3,6,7.5 & 9.
b) Explain how logical rule base is built in fuzzy logic.
8.a) Discuss the application of Neural Networks in Function
b) Explain how fuzzy logic can be used to design automatic washing
