I was under the impression that a significant contribution to the demise in
neural network research was due to the 'rise' of the digital computer.... Now
(well... in recent years) people have realised that there are things neural
nets can do better than the digital computer, and it's revived NN research.

Maybe that's too simplisitc a view.....
