Paper Abstract

A class of learning techniques for neural networks can be considered as optimization problems. The connection strengths are modified such that the difference between the network response and a desired response Is minimized. In this paper the learning techniques based on the gradient momentum Newton and quasi-Newton methods are considered. A learning algorithm is also developed based on the conjugate gradient technique. These learning techniques are applied to the Exclusive-OR problem for comparison of their performance. For this problem the algorithm based on the conjugate gradient technique converges faster than the other algorithms. 2.
