Creating a neural network with explicit patching soon becomes a mess,
With implicit patching, this is much more manageable.
# IMPLICIT PATCHING fanoutLayer1(ANN_Node11, ..., ANN_Node1N); ... fanoutLayerM(ANN_NodeM1, ..., ANN_NodeMN); ANN_Series(fanoutLayer1, ..., fanoutLayerM);
Implicit patching can automagically adjust the connections without requiring any code recompiliation. For example, we can change the number of bands in a filter bank without changing any code.
