This Paper proposes a new hardware architecture for neural network, in particular, sparsely connected. neural network. In study mode, this hardware checks weights which are small enough (nearly zero) , and eliminates negligible connections. Study is gradually accelarated as connection eliminated. It is very flexible and applicable to very large and irregularly structured neural network. Simulations show that eliminating negligible connections is effective in shortening of runtime.
