Abstract

It is widely believed in the pattern recognition field that the number of examples needed to achieve an acceptable level of generalization ability depends on the number of independent parameters needed to specify the network configuration. The paper presents a neural network for classification of high-dimensional patterns. The network architecture proposed here uses a layer which extracts the global features of patterns. The layer contains neurons whose weights are induced by a neural subnetwork. The method reduces the number of independent parameters describing the layer to the parameters describing the inducing subnetwork.
