“A Software Development Process Model for Artificial Neural Networks in Critical Applications” by David M. Rodvold Colorado Technical University and Xaim Inc.presented at the International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN’99). Washington D.C. July 1999.
In this paper Mr. Rodvold addresses the challenges of using neural networks in critical applications and describes an approach to development and validation. This paper also provides a good reference list regarding verification and validation of neural networks. The information provided could be very useful to a medical device manufacturer considering the use of neural nets for software in a device.
