The purpose of supervised learning with temporal encoding for spiking neurons is to make the neurons emit a specific spike train encoded by the precise firing times of spikes. If only running time is considered, the supervised learning for a spiking neuron is equivalent to distinguishing the times of desired output spikes and the other time during the(More)
This paper, with an aim at improving neural networks' generalization performance, proposes an effective neural network ensemble approach with two novel ideas. One is to apply neural networks' output sensitivity as a measure to evaluate neural networks' output diversity at the inputs near training samples so as to be able to select diverse individuals from a(More)
This paper proposes a set of adaptive learning rules for binary feedforward neural networks (BFNNs) by means of the sensitivity measure that is established to investigate the effect of a BFNN's weight variation on its output. The rules are based on three basic adaptive learning principles: the benefit principle, the minimal disturbance principle, and the(More)
