A Proposal For Indicating Quality Of Generalization When Evaluating Anns
1990 IJCNN International Joint Conference on Neural Networks
An expression is proposed to serve as a model for indicating quality of generalization when evaluating ANNs (analog neural networks). A conjecture made by G. G. Lendaris and G. L. Stanley Inf. Syst. Sci.; Proc. 2nd Congress, Baltimore Spartan Books, 1965) is repeated which predicts that if an ANN successfully learns a training set, then the smaller the ANN's performance space, the better will be its generalization. It is argued that the chances of an ANN learning a given task are enhanced if a significant fraction of the possible inputs from the ANN's input space is in the don't-care set.
