Título: Structuring Networks For Image Classification Using Competitive Learning
Autores: Green, P. R.; Nascimento Jr, C. L.; York, T. A.
Resumo: One major problem facing the designer of a multilayer feedforward neural network for image classification is to determine the optimum number, and size, of the hidden layers. In this article we propose to add competition within the hidden layer to encourage structuring of the solution during Back-Propagation training. Simulation of an image classification network with added competition shows that a subset of hidden layer units account for most of the network solution. As a result, the remaining hidden layer units can be removed without causing significant performance degradation.
