You want to carefully select these features and remove any that may contain patterns that won't generalize beyond the training set (and cause overfitting).

Dive Deep Into Deep Learning - DZone Big Data


What Led From Neural Networks to Deep Learning? The introduction of'Deep' architecture that supports multiple hidden layers. This creates multiple levels of representation or learning a hierarchy of feature which was absent for early neural networks. Improvements and changes to support for a variety of architectures (DBN, RBM,CNN, and RNN) to suit different kinds of problems.

Artificial Neural Network (ANN) in Machine Learning


It intended to simulate the behavior of biological systems composed of "neurons". ANNs are computational models inspired by an animal's central nervous systems. It is capable of machine learning as well as pattern recognition. These presented as systems of interconnected "neurons" which can compute values from inputs. A neural network is an oriented graph.

Data Science 101: Preventing Overfitting in Neural Networks


One of the major issues with artificial neural networks is that the models are quite complicated. For example, let's consider a neural network that's pulling data from an image from the MNIST database (28 by 28 pixels), feeds into two hidden layers with 30 neurons, and finally reaches a soft-max layer of 10 neurons. The total number of parameters in the network is nearly 25,000. This can be quite problematic, and to understand why, let's take a look at the example data in the figure below. Using the data, we train two different models - a linear model and a degree 12 polynomial.

Optimizing Deep Neural Network Architecture: A Tabu Search Based Approach Artificial Intelligence

The performance of Feedforward neural network (FNN) fully de-pends upon the selection of architecture and training algorithm. FNN architecture can be tweaked using several parameters, such as the number of hidden layers, number of hidden neurons at each hidden layer and number of connections between layers. There may be exponential combinations for these architectural attributes which may be unmanageable manually, so it requires an algorithm which can automatically design an optimal architecture with high generalization ability. Numerous optimization algorithms have been utilized for FNN architecture determination. This paper proposes a new methodology which can work on the estimation of hidden layers and their respective neurons for FNN. This work combines the advantages of Tabu search (TS) and Gradient descent with momentum backpropagation (GDM) training algorithm to demonstrate how Tabu search can automatically select the best architecture from the populated architectures based on minimum testing error criteria. The proposed approach has been tested on four classification benchmark dataset of different size.
