Berty is a DOS-based Artificial Neural Network (ANN) simulator using
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.
- Large Networks
- Only limited by size of extended RAM
- High Speed
- Program written in machine code
- Realtime I/P
- Cell stimuli via key presses
- Graphical O/P
- 2D movable viewports, 'Eeg' traces
- Simple PC Spec
- DOS-based, 80386 upwards
- 3D Network
- Cells occupy 3D volume, so have physical 'neighbours'
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
Either Shutdown and Restart in MS-DOS Mode or run the program and let
Windows create a MS-DOS shortcut for it.
Either Shutdown and Restart in MS-DOS Mode or create a shortcut/PIF
file for the Bertynnn.exe file as follows:-
Windows ME & XP
- Right-click the BERTYnnn.EXE file, click Properties,
- Check 'MS-DOS mode', select 'Specify a new MS-DOS
- Add the following lines to CONFIG.SYS, replacing
'C:\Windows' as necessary for your PC:-
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 !!!

differences between them.
This is a DOS-based program, so please note the system
requirements above. To start the program, run or double-click
the executable: Bertynnn.exe (you can 'right-click' it and
click 'Send To, Desktop' to create a shortcut for future use). When
Berty is running, press the 'h' key for further online help, or contact
me if you have any problems.
