# CONSTRUCTIVE NEURAL NETWORKS: A REVIEW

@inproceedings{Sharma2010CONSTRUCTIVENN, title={CONSTRUCTIVE NEURAL NETWORKS: A REVIEW}, author={S. Sharma and Pravin Chandra}, year={2010} }

In conventional neural networks, we have to define the architecture prior to training but in constructive neural networks the network architecture is constructed during the training process. In this paper, we review constructive neural network algorithms that constructing feedforward architecture for regression problems. Cascade-Correlation algorithm (CCA) is a well-known and widely used constructive algorithm. Cascade 2 algorithm is a variant of CCA that is found to be more suitable for… Expand
