Berty

Overview

Berty is a DOS-based Artificial Neural Network (ANN) simulator using weighted cells. It displays cell activity in real-time with moveable 'viewports', 'eeg' trace probes, and stimulus regions.

It is not intended for the advanced ANN specialist (no learning methods or complex maths!), but provides an arena for playing with cells and studying cell patterns and growth when subjected to stimuli. Just set up a network, switch on and probe around for activity.

Features


Minimum system requirements

386 processor, 640x480 vga display
200Kb conventional memory, 500Kb extended memory (XMS V3.00)
DOS (tested on V6 & Windows 95 DOS, should run on V5, possibly earlier)

Windows 95
Either Shutdown and Restart in MS-DOS Mode or run the program and let Windows create a MS-DOS shortcut for it.

Windows 98
Either Shutdown and Restart in MS-DOS Mode or create a shortcut/PIF
file for the Bertynnn.exe file as follows:-

Windows ME & XP
Program will not run unless you can somehow boot your PC into MS-DOS mode, e.g. via a floppy or dual-boot. The himem.sys driver must be present in your config.sys file. Please note that the program uses DOS routines to save/write files to disc. These work ok with FAT partitions, but have not been tested with NTFS partitions. !!! Saving/writing files to an NTFS partition is at your own risk !!!
