The attractive possibility of applying layerwise block training algorithms to multilayer perceptrons MLP, which offers initial advantages in computational effort, is refined in this article by means of introducing a sensitivity correction factor in the formulation. This results in a clear performance advantage, which we verify in several applications. The… CONTINUE READING
