Well, I'd like to tie two of my favourite things together. I'm using
neural nets here and there (not for very big tasks though, yet) and I
intended to use them in haskell too. The code from [0] was intended to
become one day useful for a project on neural nets in Haskell.

I would be interested in this project if it will be accepted and there
would be mentors.
