I want to use “Fingerprint matching using multi-dimensional ANN” by Rajesh Kumar and B.R. Deva Vikram [content link] for fingerprint identification. But I have a serious problem understanding what is a Multidimensional Artificial Neural Network.
I searched for keywords MDANN and Multidimensional ANN but I can't find anything. I also can't be sure what Kumar meant about a MDANN in his article. So far, the closest thing I can relate with Kumar's MDANN is Convolution Nets but I don't believe this is what he meant. Can anybody help me about understanding this type of ANN?
