We present a neural network for real-time learning and mapping of patterns using an external performance indicator. In a non-stationary environment where new patterns are introduced over time, the learning process utilises a novel snap-drift algorithm that performs fast, convergent, minimalist learning (snap) when the overall network performance is poor and(More)
We examine recent monetary policy in Switzerland and investigate the performance of the Divisia monetary aggregate vis a vis its simple sum counterpart in a inflation forecasting experiment. We return to the basic question: Is the Swiss inflation rate still linked closely with variations in money growth? More precisely, we ask whether Swiss Divisia(More)
This paper provides the most complete evidence to date on the importance of monetary aggregates as a policy tool in an inflation forecasting experiment. Every possible definition of 'money' in the USA is being considered for the full data period (1960 – 2006), in addition to two different approaches to constructing the benchmark asset, using the most(More)
This paper presents a novel connectionist memory-rule based model capable of learning the finite-state properties of an input language from a set of positive examples. The model is based upon an unsupervised recurrent self-organizing map with laterally interconnected neurons. A derivation of functional-equivalence theory is used that allows the model to(More)
