  author={Ke Chen and Xiang Yu and Huisheng Chi},
  journal={Neural Computing & Applications},
A novel supervised learning method is proposed by combining linear discriminant functions with neural networks. The proposed method results in a tree-structured hybrid architecture. Due to constructive learning, the binary tree hierarchical architecture is automatically generated by a controlled growing process for a specific supervised learning task. Unlike the classic decision tree, the linear discriminant functions are merely employed in the intermediate level of the tree for heuristically… CONTINUE READING
