Using Artificial Neural Networks in Phaser games.
Neural networks was for a long time something that I understood conceptually, but found very daunting to use. As a result experiences that I had with recognizing things were mostly built around support vector machines.
But what are neural networks ?
An ANN (Artificial Neural Networks) is simply put a computational model that is inspired by biological neural networks that (among other things) can be used to recognize patterns or simple drawings in my case.
With that in mind it’s important to note that an ANN is just a model and not a complete simulation of how a brain works. But like a biological neuron the artificial version has some inputs (dendrites), a part (soma) that processes those inputs and certain outputs (axon)."
