Classification by ensembles of neural networks

Research Articles


We introduce a new procedure for training of artificial neural networks by using the approximation of an objective function by arithmetic mean of an ensemble of selected randomly generated neural networks, and apply this procedure to the classification (or pattern recognition) problem. This approach differs from the standard one based on the optimization theory. In particular, any neural network from the mentioned ensemble may not be an approximation of the objective function.
