Abstract

In this work, Hopfield neural networks are applied to estimation of parameters in a dynamical model of Cuban HIV-AIDS epidemics. The time-varying weights are derived, and its formulation is adapted to the discrete case. The method is tested on a data sequence obtained from numerical solution of the model. Simulation results show that the proposed technique quickly reduces the output prediction error, and it adapts well to parameter changes. Results concerning estimation error are poor, and some directions to deal with this issue are proposed.
