Name Searching with Artificial Neural Networks


This paper reports on research into the influence of word representation methods on the ability of artificial neural networks (ANNs) to recognize spelling variants of natural language words. We use backpropagation to train a multilayer perceptron with many-to-one mappings of romanized Chinese surnames to Chinese characters. The network is trained with five… (More)
