In the past year or so we ve an increasing number of cases where gift cards have been purchased using stolen credit cards.

Well, one kind of brain-derived system, the artificial neural network, has been working so well for so long that it has become a backbone of AI. As we discussed in chapter 7, ANNs which can be rendered in hardware or software were invented in the 1960s to act like neurons. One of their chief benefits is that they can be taught. If you want to teach a neural net to translate text from French to English, for example, you can train it by inputting French texts and those texts accurate English translations. That s called supervised learning. With enough examples, the network will recognize rules that connect French words to their English counterparts.
