Model Selection for Neural Network Classification

  title={Model Selection for Neural Network Classification},
  author={Herbert K. H. Lee},
  journal={J. Classification},
Classification rates on out-of-sample predictions can often be improved through the use of model selection when fitting a model on the training data. Using correlated predictors or fitting a model of too high a dimension can lead to overfitting, which in turn leads to poor out-of-sample performance. I will discuss methodology using the Bayesian Information Criterion (BIC) of Schwarz (1978) that can search over large model spaces and find appropriate models that reduce the danger of overfitting… CONTINUE READING
