Conference paper


ESPRIT II is currently funding two major neural computing projects: Project 2059: PYGMALION and Project 2092: ANNIE.

The objectives of PYGMALION are: firstly to demonstrate to European industry the potential of neural networks for various applications; secondly to develop a European neural network programming system, language and algorithm library; and thirdly to promote exchange of neural computing information in the European research community.

This paper introduces the PYGMALION project, reviews the neural network applications in image & speech processing, and then describes the neural network programming environment.
