Volt Technical Resources, a specialty staffing business of Volt Information Sciences, Inc. today announced that Dr. James McCaffrey, Associate Vice President, will present new research at the 2012 DevConnections Conference to be held October 29 to November 1 in Las Vegas. McCaffrey will deliver a special session titled "Neural Networks for Developers."

McCaffrey's presentation will highlight new research results for neural networks, artificial intelligence heuristics based on the structures and behaviors of biological systems.

"Although neural networks have been used in research settings for quite a number of years, recent advances in hardware technology and numerical optimization algorithms will open up the use of neural networks in corporate data center environments," said McCaffrey. "Potential applications include powerful new systems based on Cloud Computing and Big Data for advanced predictions and analyses of stock market data, medical data, and social network inferences."
