    Default Neural Networks and Prediction?

    Hi everyone i was just wondering if anyone here has every created a Neural Network for predicting Sports results. i was interested in doing this however I'm not really sure where to start. if you have done something like this before could you just give me some feedback. also do you know of any good open sourced NN software which i can use to do this? Any tutorials will be great aswell

    All help is appreciated

    Thanks

    You've asked a very specific question in a very general way, so it's going to be pretty hard to help you other than to point you towards google.

    They are not easy. See the following link which is one of the top hits on google, which contains portions of a book that describe Neural Networks and contains java code. Browse through the available chapters to see if its your thing.

    As I am currently playing around with neural networks I feel I might be able to offer you some advise.

    I am using a programing language known as NetLogo, I'm sure many people have heard of it. It is developed in Java and you can easily write Java extensions for it should you need too. However, NetLogo is a rapid prototyping language which is Agent Based rather than OO. This means it has many useful features for such a task.

    NetLogo Home Page

    The link above is the home page, it should be noted that the download of NetLogo 4.1.1 includes a sample module called a "Perceptron" which is a very simple NN and then it has a sample NN as well, which is essentially 3 Perceptrons joined together.

    I Stringly reccomend you take a look at these as I feel you will find them fascinating.
