Guidance for the Verification and Validation of Neural Networks and Adaptive Systems

Overview

This book provides guidance on the verification and validation of neural networks/adaptive systems. Considering every process, activity, and task in the lifecycle, it supplies methods and techniques that will help the developer or V&V practitioner be confident that they are supplying an adaptive/neural network system that will perform as intended. Additionally, it is structured to be used as a cross-reference to the IEEE 1012 standard.
