This chapter describe various types of ANN systems in relative detail. It is the aim of the chapter to give descriptions of advanced ANN system in such a detail as to facilitate easy implementation. The first few sections are dedicated to the recent weightless neural networks. This is followed by a weighted neural system section. Two advanced Bayesian network are introduced subsequently. The last section of the chapter explains the dynamics of ANN and how ANN nay be evaluated. The chapter has given a relatively extensive description of typical advanced neural networks from various categories of ANN systems.
