This paper presents a new self-creating model of a neural network in which a branching mechanism is incorporated with competitive learning. Unlike other self-creating models, the proposed scheme, called branching competitive learning (BCL), adopts a special node-splitting criterion, which is based mainly on the geometrical measurements of the movement of the synaptic vectors in the weight space. Compared with other self-creating and nonself-creating competitive learning models, the BCL network… CONTINUE READING
