Cross validation can be used to detect when overfitting starts during supervised training of a neural network; training is then stopped before convergence to avoid the overfitting ('early stopping'). The exact criterion used for cross validation based early stopping, however, is chosen in an ad-hoc fashion by most researchers or training is stopped interactively. To aid a more well-founded selection of the stopping criterion, 14 different automatic stopping criteria from three classes were… CONTINUE READING
