Error Bounds for Functional Approximation and Estimation Using Mixtures of Experts

  title={Error Bounds for Functional Approximation and Estimation Using Mixtures of Experts},
  author={Assaf J. Zeevi and Ron Meir and Vitaly Maiorov},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Information Theory},
We examine some mathematical aspects of learning unknown mappings with the Mixture of Experts Model MEM Speci cally we observe that the MEM is at least as powerful as a class of neural networks in a sense that will be made precise Upper bounds on the approximation error are established for a wide class of target functions The general theorem states that inf kf fnkp c n r d holds uniformly for f W r p L a Sobolev class over d where fn belongs to an n dimensional manifold of normalized ridge… CONTINUE READING
