This 2004 KDD Cup presents a perfect case where the usual neural network objective functions do not apply. While the contest problem consisted of 4 different entries with 4 different objective functions, this paper will focus on the solution optimizing GRMSE (Grouped Root Mean Squared Error). It will be shown that the more typical objective functions (including RMSE) cannot be as effective at meeting this criteria. While this objective function may be specific to this problem, and the reader… CONTINUE READING
