Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Artificial neural networks are currently being used in many areas, including those responsible for human life or connected with significant financial impact. This Special Issue is therefore looking for papers addressing issues related to their applicability and reliability. These networks also play an important role in business and are an important part of various business activities.  This Special Issue is therefore focused on the possibilities of artificial neural networks, the current status of technology, and the applicability of artificial neural networks in current business practice.

Theoretical and empirical papers focused on the application of artificial neural networks for regression, classification or cluster analysis in a company are therefore solicited.  Papers dealing with the application of artificial networks within the evaluation and prediction of time series in business, and that support decision-making processes in companies, the creation of creditworthiness and bankruptcy models, or process management in companies are also welcome.

Papers aimed at the application of neural networks in the consumers´ responses to new products, detection of credit risk, detection of machine and computer failures, product quality recognition, prediction of security prices, demand and sales prediction, cost or inventory management, determination of value generators, financial plan and similar applications are especially welcome.
