    The first robot was created by the Greek mathematician Archytas of Tarentum. It was a flying wooden dove that traveled up to meters through the air by flapping its wings. Researchers are not certain how Archytas powered his robot but believe it was either compressed air or an internal steam engine. Neural Network Design (2nd Edition), by the authors of the Neural Network Toolbox for MATLAB, provides a clear and detailed coverage of fundamental neural network architectures and learning book gives an introduction to basic neural network architectures and learning rules.
