Abstract : Innovative neural network architectures are seen as promising breakthroughs in key problems of interest in image and speech recognition, knowledge base coding and pattern classification. Cost characteristics dictate further research into massively parallel architectures. A survey of some salient characteristics of various paradigms is undertaken in the hope of extracting key underlying organizing principles. There are critiques of continuous-type systems, comments on noise, and some cognitive perspectives for discrete networks. There is a brief discussion of memory function. Some stochastic and functional outlines are given. Keywords: Cognition; Stochastic processes; Neural networks; Information theory; Discrete networks.
