NeuroSolutions Custom Solution Wizard

by NeuroDimension

The Custom Solution Wizard (CSW) is an add-on program for NeuroSolutions that will allow you to embed a custom neural network into your own application. It does this by encapsulating your NeuroSolutions neural network (breadboard) into a self-contained Dynamic Link Library (DLL).

The Custom Solution Wizard (CSW) is an add-on program for NeuroSolutions that will allow you to embed a custom neural network into your own application. It does this by encapsulating your NeuroSolutions neural network (breadboard) into a self-contained Dynamic Link Library (DLL). It also gives you the option to automatically create a shell program for your development environment and configure it for you data and DLL. Now you don't have to be an advanced programmer to develop a custom neural-network-based application.

Create Recall-Only or Learning DLLs

There are two types of neural network DLLs that the Custom Solution Wizard can create:

  • Recall-Only
    A recall-only DLL is one in which the internal weights of the neural network are trained within NeuroSolutions by you the DLL developer and cannot be modified by the user of the DLL. Its only purpose it to obtain the neural network output when given a new set of input data. This type of DLL is used in applications where either you want to limit the users' level of control or where re-training or re-tuning of the neural network weights is not necessary. Recall-only DLLs can be generated by all levels of the Custom Solution Wizard.
  • Learning
    A learning DLL has all of the functionality of a recall-only DLL, but it also gives the end-user of your application the ability to re-tune or re-train the neural network weights with new data. This type of DLL is used in applications when you want to give the users more control over the neural network or when a periodic re-training or re-tuning of the weights is necessary due to changes in the system dynamics over time. Learning DLLs can only be generated the Developers level of the Custom Solution Wizard.

Start with a Working Project

The Custom Solution Wizard can do more than just create an isolated DLL. It can create a sample application project for:

  • Microsoft Visual Basic
  • Microsoft Access
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft Visual C++
  • Active Server Pages (.asp web pages)

It integrates the DLL into the project, giving you an excellent starting point for your own application. In addition, the training data from the breadboard used to create the DLL is automatically extracted and configured for use by the running application. From there it is just a matter of modifying the C++, VB, VBA or ASP code and the GUI to meet the needs of your custom application.

Create Custom Neural Network Models for Trading

The TradingSolutions Suite is the combination of TradingSolutions, NeuroSolutions (Developers Lite level), NeuroSolutions for Excel and the Custom Solution Wizard (Developers level). When combined, these tools extend the neural modeling capabilities of TradingSolutions to give power users all the flexibility they need to turn their own neural network designs into profits.
TradingSolutions includes over 50 variations of 5 neural network architectures to choose from, which offers more flexibility than any other neural-network-based technical analysis package on the market. However, with the TradingSolutions Suite you have an infinite number of neural network topologies at your disposal, allowing you to solve even the most challenging financial forecasting problems.

Using NeuroSolutions and possibly NeuroSolutions for Excel, you first design a prototype neural network model with some financial data. If the initial testing results look promising then you quickly launch the Custom Solution Wizard and compile the neural network into a DLL. You then would switch to TradingSolutions to perform a complete profitability analysis on the neural network model. If it proves to be profitable, then you add it to your watch list and start trading the signals. You can also use the DLL as the neural network engine for new TradingSolutions models.

Create a Web-based Application that utilizes Neural Network Technology

Custom Solution Wizard DLLs can be used from Active Server Pages (ASP), allowing you to implement neural network models that users can access and use directly from your web site. You could even allow the user to upload the data to use for training the neural model. The best part is that the Custom Solution Wizard allows you to create a fully-functional Active Server Page shell to help you get started.

Pay No Royalties or Runtime Fees

Other neural network development platforms may allow you to deploy a neural network to your application, but often the network is restricted to a fixed architecture and is recall-only. If a platform does provide more flexible neural networks, the company will often require you to pay a royalty or runtime fee for any neural-network-enabled products or services you sell. With the Custom Solution Wizard DLLs, what you develop is what you own -- even learning networks!

System Requirements:

  • Windows 95/98/ME/2000/NT/XP
  • NeuroSolutions v4
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 5.0/6.0/7.0 (.NET)
    Note: Knowledge of Visual C++ is not required since this compiler is used "behind the scenes" to create the neural network DLL
