Two categories of ANN systems are able to model any intelligent Expert in great detail. These are Bayesian network, and neuromorphic network. Both are hampered by lack of adequate resources and lack of human knowledge. Research and development on these two categories of ANN systems is the subject of this chapter. The first section of chapter 11, on Bayesian network, specifically describes Hybrid Monte Carlo (HMC) and associated algorithms, after which areas of possible researches are highlighted. The second section is on neuromorphic network. It presents the current state of industrial development. The chapter has taken care to omit those conceptual developments which may not be achievable in near future. Illustration of the recent neuromorphic design has been given in concluding the second section. The chapter has provided research and development information resources on two advanced ANN systems.
