Ensembles of Artificial Neural Networks for Predicting Economic Situation of Small and Medium Enterprises
Results of predicting an economic and financial situation of small and medium size enterprises from Lubelskie and Podkarpackie regions are presented. As opposed to other research in this field, the micro-macro (mezzo-) modeling concept was used. The results of prediction using neural perceptrons and two types of ensembles of artificial neural networks were compared. Some conclusions and directions of further research aiming at improving quality and extending the functionalism of enterprises being investigated are dealt with.
