Self-Organizing Maps with Asymmetric Neighborhood Function

Takaaki Aoki, Toshio Aoyagi
2007 Neural Computation  
The self-organizing map (SOM) is an unsupervised learning method as well as a type of nonlinear principal component analysis that forms a topologically ordered mapping from the high-dimensional data space  ...  One of the major culprits for this slow ordering time is that a kind of topological defect (e.g., a kink in one dimension or a twist in two dimensions) gets created in the map during training.  ...  This work was supported by CREST (Core Research for Evolutional Science and Technology) of Japan Science and Technology Corporation (JST) and by Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research from the Ministry of  ...

Photometric Redshift Estimation with Galaxy Morphology using Self-Organizing Maps [article]

Derek Wilson, Hooshang Nayyeri, Asantha Cooray, Boris Häußler
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We use Self Organizing Maps (SOMs) to map the multi dimensional photometric and galaxy size observations while taking advantage of existing spectroscopic redshifts at 0 < z < 2 for independent training  ...  We show that use of photometric and morphological data led to redshift estimates comparable to redshift measurements from SED modeling and from self-organizing maps without morphological measurements.  ...  To obtain a slight improvement in accuracy, the median of the results of 500 SOMs was found (since each self-organizing map will be slightly different as the initial node weights are random and the training  ...
