Paper Abstract

A specialized multilayer perceptron architecture called the adaptive neighborhood network is presented. Geometric and statistical information about pattern distributions replace traditional heuristics for network structure and initialization. As a result, adaptive neighborhood networks train quickly and simply, and perform well in certain classification applications.
