We compare a number of training algorithms for competitive learning networks applied to the problem of vector quantization for data compression. A new competitive-learning algorithm based on the "conscience" learning method is introduced. The performance of competitive learning neural networks and traditional nonneural algorithms for vector quantization is compared. The basic properties of the algorithms are discussed and we present a number of examples that illustrate their use. The newâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
