NeuroShell Classifier

NeuroShell Classifier is software designed to help examine your data and create categories such as {cancer, benign}, {buy, sell, hold}, {acidic, neutral, alkaline}, {highly qualified, qualified, unqualified}, {winner, loser}, {product 1 , product 2, … , product N}, {decision 1, decision2, … , decision N}. The NeuroShell Classifier can also help detect data patterns that are similar. The neural networks included in the Classifier are optimized for classification and categorization problems.  When using the genetic training strategy, the user has a choice of three goals for genetic optimization:  to minimize the total number of incorrect classifications, to minimize the average percentage of incorrect classifications over all categories, or to maximize the custom fitness function built with the user-defined Fitness Coefficients Matrix. Once training of the model is completed, several statistical measures are displayed to aid in analyzing the effectiveness of the model:  sensitivity, specificity, ROC (Receiver Operating Characteristic or Relative Operating Characteristic) Curves and a probabilities graph. 

Use the NeuroShell Classifier to solve problems such as:

  1. Disease diagnosis.
  2. Monitoring physiological signals.
  3. Monitoring cardiovascular systems. 
  4. Psychiatric diagnosis.
  5. Medical test analysis.

Programmers'

Many users will want to transform their neural network or genetic algorithm model into a tool that they can use on a daily basis or sell for others to use. Several of our software products will allow you to make this transition.

 

 

NeuroShell Run-Time Server

Once you have created a prediction or classification model with the NeuroShell Predictor or NeuroShell Classifier, you may not want to open the program every time you need to get a result. The NeuroShell Run-Time Server enables you to call a previously trained model from either a simple interface, from your own computer programs, or from Excel spreadsheets.

For more information on NeuroShell Run-Time Server, CLICK HERE.

NeuroShell Engine

It took over three years of research to build powerful, state-of-the-art neural network algorithms included in the NeuroShell Predictor and Classifier. The NeuroShell Engine will allow you to embed these same neural network models, including training, into your own programs. If you choose, these models may be updated with new data from your program rather than using the Predictor or Classifier interface. The NeuroShell Engine is an Active X control that can be loaded into your Visual Basic, C++, or Delphi programs to allow you to develop your own neural network training software and interfaces using our powerful neural network algorithms. Incorporating training of the best neural networks on the planet is a piece of cake!

NeuroShell 2 Run-Time System

The Runtime system included in NeuroShell 2 allows you to convert your previously trained neural network model into a form callable by a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) that may be called from other programs or Microsoft Excel. The Runtime Module will also generate Visual Basic or C source code for your trained neural network that may be called from non-Windows programs.
