Neural network for helping compute SHA256 (specifically for bitcoin)  Tim Engler  6/6/11 11:20 AM  I am a total newbie when it comes to neural networks, but my basic question is, if you have an output for a neural network that can have multiple right answers, what is a good "desired output" to give it for back propagation? Also, if you notice any other glaring errors in my approach My specific details are below: I'm trying to use a neural network (specifically, FANN) to help speed For example, the target could be It will have succeeded if it chooses a nonce so the hash is less than My hope is that a NN could choose nonces that were more likely to I create an ANN (details at the bottom of this message with 224 inputs For example, suppose there were only 4 bits of output instead of 32 This would translate to a guess of 0101. Then I hash it, and if it was
1. Use the nonce that produced the target after bit flipping from the Neural network settings: Library: Fast Artificial Neural Network Library (FANN) http://leenissen.dk/ Activation function: Sigmoid Symetric I also tried a networks with 1 hidden layer of 112 neurons. Thanks, Tim
