Neural Computation in Medicine: Perspectives and Prospects [chapter]

Richard Dybowski
2000 Artificial Neural Networks in Medicine and Biology  
In 1998, over 400 papers on artificial neural networks (ANNs) were published in the context of medicine, but why is there this interest in ANNs?  ...  Finally, we briefly look at two directions in which ANNs are likely to develop, namely the use of Bayesian statistics and knowledgedata fusion.  ...  Bayesian ANNs have not yet found their way into general use, but, given their capabilities, we expect them to take a prominent role in medical neural computation.  ...

A Comparative Evaluation of Sequential Constructive Methods [chapter]

Marco Muselli
1999 Perspectives in Neural Computing  
In particular, the neural networks trained show good generalization ability also when the learning time is very low.  ...  Four of them incrementally build the hidden layer of the resulting neural network by subsequently adding threshold units.  ...  Furthermore, the low computational cost of HC allows the reduction of the total CPU time in all the three tests.  ...

Training Data Selection for Optimal Generalization with Noise Variance Reduction in Neural Networks [chapter]

Sethu Vijayakumar, Masashi Sugiyama, Hidemitsu Ogawa
1999 Perspectives in Neural Computing  
We formalize the learning problem in neural networks as an inverse problem using a functional analytic framework and use the Averaged Projection criterion as our optimization criterion for learning.  ...  In this paper, we discuss the problem of active training data selection in the presence of noise.  ...  The generalization ability of a learning system in a noisy environment is a delicate balance on how well it can select data to enlarge the approximation space and at the same time, reduce noise variance  ...
