Kohonen Feature Maps and Growing Cell Structures - a Performance Comparison

  title={Kohonen Feature Maps and Growing Cell Structures - a Performance Comparison},
  author={Bernd Fritzke},
A performance comparison of two self-organizing networks, the Kohonen Feature Map and the recently proposed Growing Cell Structures is made. For this purpose several performance criteria for self-organizing networks are proposed and motivated. The models are tested with three example problems of increasing difficulty. The Kohonen Feature Map demonstrates slightly superior results only for the simplest problem. For the other more difficult and also more realistic problems the Growing Cell… CONTINUE READING
