▲ 10 ▼ Self organizing maps in go
Couple of months ago I came across a type of Artificial Neural Network I knew very little about: Self-organizing map (SOM). I vaguely remembered the term from my university studies. We scratched upon it when we were learning about data clustering algorithms. So when I re-discovered it again, my knowledge of it was very basic, almost non-existent. It felt like a great opportunity to learn something new and interesting, so I rolled up my sleeves, dived into reading and hacking.
