QSAR (Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship) modelling is one of the well developed areas in drug development through computational chemistry. This kind of relationship between molecular structure and change in biological activity is center of focus for QSAR modelling. Machine learning algorithms are important tools for QSAR analysis, as a result, they are integrated into the drug production process. In this paper we will try to go through the problem of learning the Complex-Valued

In this paper, a CVNN model for realvalued regression problems s presented. We tested such trained CVNN on two drug sets as a real world benchmark problem. The results show that the prediction and generalization abilities of CVNNs is superior in comparison to the conventional real-valued neural networks (RVNNs). Moreover, convergence of CVNNs is much faster than that of RVNNs in most of the cases.
