Abstract: In this work, we present a short overview of some studies made with paraconsistent artificial neural network (PANN). PANN is a new type of artificial neural network (ANN) based on a new class of paraconsistent logics, namely paraconsistent annotated evidential logic Eτ, which is capable of manipulating concepts like impreciseness, inconsistency, and paracompleteness in a non-trivial manner.

Keywords: artificial neural networks; ANNs; PANNs; paraconsistent logics; annotated logics; cephalometric variables; Alzheimers disease; impreciseness; inconsistency; paracompleteness.
