Abstract
NATURAL NEURAL NETWORKS ARE STILL OUR BEST GUIDE TO THE DESIGN PRINCIPLES OF ADAPTIVE, INTELLIGENT COMPUTING ARCHITECTURES. DETAILED KNOWLEDGE OF THE MOLECULAR BIOPHYSICAL STRUCTURES THAT MAKE BRAINS WORK WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE, BUT THAT IS NOT THE ONLY WAY TO EXTRACT NATURE'S SECRETS. THIS PROPOSAL USES THE CONCEPT OF RESONANCE AS THE MEANS TO TUNE THE PARAMETERS OF AN ARTIFICIAL NEURAL SYSTEM (ANS) SO AS TO MAXIMIZE THE STRUCTURAL SIMILARITY BETWEEN THE ANS AND A NATURAL NETWORK AND TO ACCELERATE THE EVOLUTION OF THE ANS MODEL. THE CONCEPT EXPLOITS THE CONVERGENCE OF NEUROSCIENCE METHODS AND NEUROCOMPUTING TECHNOLOGY TO LINK A NATURAL MAMMALIAN NETWORK IN CULTURE TO A TUNABLE ANS.
