Synaptic modulation based artificial neural networks
This work introduces complex processing neural network topologies, based on the concept of modulating neuron, which induce higher order terms by means of the modulation of the synaptic weights. These structures present the advantages of being very easy to train, adapting easily to changing contexts and offer very good generalization capabilities along all the dimensions of the problems they are trained to solve. Finally, the function each modulation level or each module performs is very clear, making it simple to extend the model to multilevel hierarchies.
