This paper presents a variation of the back-propagation algorithm that makes optimal use of a network hidden units by decr~asing an "energy" term written as a function of the squared activations of these hidden units. The algorithm can automatically find optimal or nearly optimal architectures necessary to solve known Boolean functions, facilitate the interpretation of the activation of the remaining hidden units and automatically estimate the complexity of architectures appropriate for… CONTINUE READING
