In most applications of the multilayer perceptron (MLP) the main objective is to maximize the generalization ability of the network. We show that this ability is related to the sensitivity of the output of the MLP to small input changes. Several criteria have been proposed for the evaluation of the sensitivity. We propose a new index and present a way for(More)
A likelihood approach to HLA serology has been developed in which the aim is not to define a recognition set for a serum but to describe the serum's ability to react with each and every antigen in the test cells, this ability being quantified in terms of the probability of a positive reaction. For a given set of probabilities, one for each antigen, it is(More)
