The article deals with a particular neural network mapping innovation, which is called MultiSOM. MultiSOM was firstly introduced for the information retrieval purposes. MultiSOM is the multi-map extension of the Kohonen SOM algorithm. This last concept technically supposes unsupervised classification and learning capabilities, and pays pretty importance to spatial order in the representation of data. The MultiSOM introduces the concepts of viewpoints and dynamics into the information analysis… Expand
