Neural Network in JavaScript

I’ve seen just about everything else implemented in the lightweight, scripting language of the web, so why not a neural network? I saw this via Hacker News and it doesn’t strike me as too far different from libraries for doing heavy graphic processing in JavaScript. I could also see some distributed applications potentially using this. Think about it, modern browsers increasingly provide excellent client side storage, useful for hanging onto locally produced results, and means for sending and receiving data much more smartly, just what you would need to distribute tasks and collect results. I think a folding@home style project that works completely in the browser makes a great deal of sense.

The code is licensed under an MIT license and is available on github. Both would make it pretty simple to grab it and experiment quickly, whether pursuing my idea of distributed neural networks or any application that could make use of the capabilities of such a tool in a lightweight execution environment.
