Hybrid Feedforward Neural Networks for Solving Classification Problems

  title={Hybrid Feedforward Neural Networks for Solving Classification Problems},
  author={Iulian B. Ciocoiu},
  journal={Neural Processing Letters},
A novel multistage feedforward network is proposed for efficient solving of difficult classification tasks. The standard Radial Basis Functions (RBF) architecture is modified in order to alleviate two potential drawbacks, namely the ‘curse of dimensionality’ and the limited discriminatory capacity of the linear output layer. The first goal is accomplished by feeding the hidden layer output to the input of a module performing Principal Component Analysis (PCA). The second one is met by… CONTINUE READING
