This paper presents a general statistical description of the problem of learning from examples. Our focus is learning in layered networks, which is posed as an optimization problem: a search in the network parameter space for a network that minimizes an additive error function of the statistically independent examples. By imposing the equivalence of the minimum error and maximum likelihood criteria for training the network, we arrive at the Gibbs distribution on the ensemble of networks with… CONTINUE READING
