The International Neural Network Society (INNS) is the premiere organization for individuals interested in a theoretical and computational understanding of the brain and applying that knowledge to develop new and more effective forms of machine intelligence. INNS was formed in 1987 by the leading scientists in the neural network field. The Society has grown rapidly to encompass a worldwide membership of more than 2,000. The field of neural networks encourages interdisciplinary perspectives, and INNS' membership reflects this diversity. Members represent a variety of fields, backgrounds and level of interest. Our goals are to better understand the human brain/mind and to create more powerful brain/mind-inspired intelligent machines for addressing complex problems faced by 21st-century societies. These goals are challenging, exciting, and rewarding and with our joint efforts, we can make a significant difference in our future.
In Memoriam: Walter Jackson Freeman III
(January 30, 1927 – April 24, 2016)
It is with deepest sympathies for the family and friends of Walter J. Freeman, that we announce his passing. Dr. Freeman, INNS President in 1994, has been an extremely influential neuroscientist and has earned the highest respect all over the world for his revolutionary ideas on neurodynamics, which transformed the field. To read the obituary written for Dr. Freeman by INNS President-Elect, Robert Kozma, please follow the link to In Memoriam: Walter Jackson Freeman III.
Membership includes a subscription to the journal Neural Networks (10 issues per year); discounts on conference registration fees to the largest and most widely known international meetings on neural networks; a subscription to the INNS newsletter; discounts on scientific publications and periodicals pertaining to neural networks; and membership in Special Interest Groups focused on specific theoretical or applications issues.
On behalf of the Board of Governors and members of the INNS, I welcome you to the Society’s website, where you will find many useful resources. The INNS is the premiere professional society for researchers across the world who are working on neural networks and related areas such as big data, machine learning, computational neuroscience, neuroinformatics, and cognitive science. We also welcome...
Neural Networks is the archival journal of the world's three oldest neural modeling societies: the International Neural Network Society (INNS), the European Neural Network Society (ENNS), and the Japanese Neural Network Society (JNNS). A subscription to the journal is included with membership in each of these societies.
