In this letter, a new approach for the learning process of multilayer feedforward neural network is introduced. This approach minimizes a modified form of the criterion used in the standard backpropagation algorithm. This criterion is based on the sum of the linear and the nonlinear quadratic errors of the output neuron. The quadratic linear error signal is(More)
A novel method of colour image segmentation based on fuzzy homogeneity and data fusion techniques is presented. The general idea of mass function estimation in the Dempster-Shafer evidence theory of the histogram is extended to the homogeneity domain. The fuzzy homogeneity vector is used to determine the fuzzy region in each primitive colour, whereas, the(More)
In this paper, the Davidon Fletcher Powell (DFP) algorithm for nonlinear least squares is proposed to train multilayer perceptron (MLP). Applied on both a single output layer perceptron and MLP, we find that this algorithm is faster than the Marquardt-Levenberg (ML) algorithm known as the fastest algorithm used to train MLP until now. The number of(More)
This paper deals with a new approach to detect the structure (i.e. determination of the number of hidden units) of a feedforward neural network (FNN). This approach is based on the principle that any FNN could be represented by a Volterra series such as a nonlinear input-output model. The new proposed algorithm is based on the following three steps: first,(More)
