Let the response of a simple two-story frame to a stochastic dynamic excitation be controlled by activating suitable actuators. A neural network is trained to recognize, from the measurement of the input intensity at the beginning of the excitation, the benefit that can be obtained by the control for that specific input time history. It is a preliminary step toward the design of a neural network which decides whether or not to activate the actuators in an actively controlled structure.
