Abstract
There is a vigorous, enthusiastic and growing community of neural network theorists, developers and users in Canada. The problems of many of them are serious, however, development funds are scarce, efforts are uncoordinated, and many would-be researchers and developers in the field find that they have no mandate to work on neural nets. Trends are changing rapidly, however, at least insofar as scientific managers' attitudes in Government and the private sector are concerned. Coordination of effort remains a serious problem in Canada--workers are frequently unaware of whole groups of other workers working on the same problems, sometimes quite nearby. Research efforts will remain fragmented as long as that is true. Development in any field is said to be difficult to fund in Canada. Whatever the cause, Government agencies can both research and development of neural networks if they assist the exchange of information among researchers, and between developers and users.
