A feedforward neural network architecture aimed at survival probability estimation is presented which generalizes the standard, usually linear, models described in literature. The network builds an approximation to the survival probability of a system at a given time, conditional on the system features. The resulting model is described in a hierarchical(More)
In the last decade, the use of neural networks (NN) and of other soft computing methods has begun to spread also in the astronomical community which, due to the required accuracy of the measurements, is usually reluctant to use automatic tools to perform even the most common tasks of data reduction and data mining. The federation of heterogeneous large(More)
In this paper, a novel information geometric-based variable selection criterion for multi-layer perceptron networks is described. It is based on projections of the Riemannian manifold defined by a multi-layer perceptron network on submanifolds defined by multi-layer perceptron networks with reduced input dimension. We show how the divergence between models(More)
