Peltarion Synapse is a graphical development environment for neural networks and other adaptive systems. It handles the whole data-mining cycle from visualization, preprocessing, model building and training to post-processing and deployment. Synapse combines an easy-to-use graphical user interface with powerful algorithms for adaptive systems and neural networks. It uses an intuitive component-based design approach that allows for easy integration with existing systems. Synapse is built around Microsoft .NET technology and the adaptive systems created can be deployed as stand-alone single .NET components. Users can with a minimum effort extend Syanpse by writing their own plug-ins. Version 1.2 includes Vista support.
