Will Artificial Neural Networks devolve ?
Or wouldn't it oscillate around the latest set-point ?
No, I don't think it will devolve, but it certainly won't evolve as it isn't
dynamic as the biological intelligence.

Agreed Bloxy's.
Your post was highly informative and beyound the scope of
primitive intelligence.
