[ contact / participants ]


Objectives and Approach

The aim of PYGMALION was to create an independent European technological base for the applications, algorithms and software aspects of neurocomputing. The project led to the coordination of research on connectionist computing techniques and provided the means for developing the necessary software tools for productive research.

The objectives are to:

Progress and Results

Exploitation

Thomson-CSF intends to commercialise the general-purpose neurocomputer to serve as a fast application development environment, and the software environment for the investigation, simulation and analysis of neural models.

Philips intends to implement a neural network simulator on a DOOM machine.

Standard Elektrik Lorenz intends to make speech recognisers, based on artificial neural network methodology for office environments and information processing, as an OEM product.

CSELT will exploit progress from the demonstrator projects through the other companies of the STET holding (of which it is the advanced research centre).

The academic and research partners will contribute to the diffusion of the technology.
