Paper Abstract

Complex-valued weights are used in the first layer of a feed forward neural network to produce a `transform' neural network. This network was applied to a phase-uncertain sine wave detection task against a Gaussian white noise background. When compared with results of a human observer study on this task by Burgess et al., performance of the transform network was found to be nearly equal to that of an ideal observer and far superior to that of the human observers. Performance was found to be dramatically affected by initial values of the weights, which is explained in terms of concepts from statistical decision theory.
