This article develops approaches to generate dynamical reservoirs of echo state networks with desired properties reducing the amount of randomness. It is possible to create weight matrices with a predefined singular value spectrum. The procedure guarantees stability (echo state property). We prove the minimization of the impact of noise on the training process. The resulting reservoir types are strongly related to reservoirs already known in the literature. Our experiments show that well-chosen… CONTINUE READING
