Crow exposes artificial neural networks in Grasshopper, offering supervisde learning through backpropagation networks and unsupervised learning through self-organizing maps. As mentioned by Pennjamin (developer of FlexHopper and Crow), "The new feature let's you visualise network training in real time. [In hopes of] better intuition on how to setup a good network topology." The video shows the classification of fruit-like shapes, but more complex tasks could be achieved with this tool.
It's exciting to start seeing the introduction of machine intelligence algorithms in tools like Grasshopper and Dynamo.
