Self-organizing Neural networks
Self-organizing Neural network possess an isometry with self-assembling
physical systems. One particular system of interest is proteins and other
polymers. To demonstrate the efficiency of the Kohonen algorithm for
self-organizing systems, we fold a 2-dimensional model before
your eyes in real time. The molecular modeling program
AMMP uses a version
of this algorithm for modelling polymer systems.
The green curve rapidly folds up and fills the prior shape, in this case
the unit square, with a non-knotted self-avoiding chain. The curve is
similar to fractal curves such as the Koch curve. It also possesses, like
real polymers, large stretches of apparently ordered structure.
