Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) are employed in many areas of industry such as pattern recognition, robotics, controls, medicine, and defence. Their learning and generalization capabilities make them highly desirable solutions for complex problems. However, they are commonly perceived as black boxes since their behavior is typically scattered around its elements with little meaning to an observer. The primary concern in safety critical systems development and assurance is the identification… Expand
