AIM For Windows
by John Sweeney
Neural networks haven't proven to be a panacea for those who want to find hidden patterns. No, the
neural nets require artful preparation of the data and equally artful, not to mention time consuming,
structuring of the network and exploration of the data. Nor does the world stand still once a model is
defined; network models age the way that other models do.
Those who use neural networks often wish for a tool that could be as effective but take less time to create
and update. Mostly, though, they crave speed. AIM (which stands for Abductive Information Modeling).is
an alternative approach with that promise.

related to first, today's change, second, the change from 10 days ago and three, the change from 20 days
ago, but you don't know exactly what the relationship is.
