In a first-of-its-kind study in South Africa into water demand forecasting using computational intelligence techniques, CSIR researchers Dr Fulufhelo Nelwamondo and Ishmael Msiza have found that the modelling technique based on how the human brain performs a particular task, can be very useful. They found that an artificial neural network (ANN) 'outsmarts' a support vector machine (SVM), which is a classifier derived from statistical learning theory.
