Getting Started: Example Networks

Lens provides a number of example networks to give you a convenient reference and some fun toy problems to play with.

If this is your first time using Lens, you will want to explore the...

Tutorial Network

Afterwards, you can continue to read on in the manual or just work through the examples and reference the manual as needed. If you are not too experienced with neural networks, or even if you are, you could probably learn a lot by experimenting with these networks and trying to understand and improve their performance.
