Incremental learning with self-organizing maps


We present a novel use for self-organizing maps (SOMs) as an essential building block for incremental learning algorithms. SOMs are very well suited for this purpose because they are inherently online learning algorithms, because their weight updates are localized around the best-matching unit, which inherently protects them against catastrophic forgetting… (More)
