Paper Abstract

Multilayer neural networks are widely applied in fields of pattern recognition, speech processing, optimization problems, non-linear identification, non-linear adaptive control and other applications. They are trained usually by the error back-propagation algorithm. The main calculation problem of the algorithm is the goal function gradient searching implemented successively backward from the output layer. Two-layer neural networks can solve the approximation problem for a complicated non-linear function of many variables, as well as be effectively applied to automatic control problems, namely for the non-linear dynamic object identification. Calculation of the goal function gradient can be performed directly for two- layer neural networks, omitting the error back-propagation procedure, while a large number of calculations on each step remain. A training procedure simplified from the calculation point of view aimed at hardware implementation is suggested below for two-layer neural networks.
