Hi, For the newlin function of the neural net toolbox, the online help says: NEWLIN(PR,S,ID,LR) takes these arguments, PR - Rx2 matrix of min and max values for R input elements. S - Number of elements in the output vector. ID - Input delay vector, default = [0]. LR - Learning rate, default = 0.01; My question concerns just what the purpose of PR is. Reading that I would think that it limits the range of what the input values can be, however if we do the following: net = newlin([-1 1],1,[0 1]); net.biasConnect=0; net.IW{1,1} = [1 2]; P = {1 2 3 4}...

Dear neural network experts, I would like to make a neural network model for a situation when some of the input variables can interact, while others don't have any interactions. This information is based on logical considerations and I have to include it into the architecture of the net. For example, I have 3 different groups of input variables. Within each groups the variables are disjunct (i.e. no interaction). Variables of different groups may interact. This would result in either - restrictions to some weights of a network consisting of completely inter-linked neurons (i.e. some weights have to be zero), or - a combination of neural networks, one for each group of variables and one combining the groups (nested nets?). This network needs to be created, trained and simulated. How can I implement this based on commands of the neural network toolbox (newff?, trainlm?)? I would be very happy if you can point me to an example or similar that demonstrates how the commands have to be used in this situation. Many thanks in advance!

Disclaimer: I know very little about neural nets. That said, from what I understand, the optimal parameters for a neural net vary from task to task: the number of nodes, layers, type of feedback, etc. I gather that it is largely up to the designer's sense of what would be appropriate for any given problem, and then some trial and error. Has anyone fooled around with having a neural net optimize a neural net? It would give a configuration as an output, the suggested net would then run on the original problem for a while, and its trained accuracy would be given as input to the meta-net. ...

Hi there, I made an appointment to see one of my lecturers a few days back and said it was going to be about AI. When I got there, I aske dhim about Neural Nets and he told me that NNs are not considered a branch of AI. I didnt want to disagree but he did not explain why. Could someone please elaborate and explain why NNs are not considered a bramch of AI? Thanks Allan [ comp.ai is moderated.

Hi, I am working on a set of 1000 data each having 12 input vectors, that is a matrix of [1000 x 12] and 1 output, the total matrix being [1000 x 1]. I am using 1 hidden layer. I am developing a matlab program (without using the toolbox)to get the output. I have a target output matrix of [1500 x 1]. I have backpropagated the errors and updated the weights. now I am planning to use the moentum term. I know the logic, but I am not sure about writing it in the matlab code. Can somebody help me? Thanks, S.M shonai mehta wrote: > Hi, > > I am working on a set of 1000 data each having 12 input vectors, You have a data set consisting of 1000 input vectors. Each has 12 components. Therefore, the input space is at most, 11 dimensional. Hope this helps. Greg P.S.

Dear members, I am new to Neural networks, and would like to get advise form experienced users suggestions for my problem, Problem and data I am having a sensor which measures salt content of water in a hard water body and the sensor gives timeseries data of salt content. As time progress( after 3 months or so) the sensor is getting deposited with minerals and the measurement start drifting form the correct values( this could be nonlinear as it dippends on various factors). The target of me is to correct the drift to the normal values. I intent to use neural network fo...

Hi All I am currently trying to train Elman nets using TRAINBR. Problem is that after the first epoch my sum of squared weights (SSW) goes to a very small number then just keeps getting smaller e.g. of the order of 10^-11. Because of this the network does not perform at all well. This effect is unpredictable as sometimes the net does train up and the SSW is reasonable. However, more often or not I get the extremely small SSW. The network sizes I am using are small, just one hidden layer with a varying number of neurons. I have tried larger and more varied architectures but the same prob...

Hello all, I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I am undertaking a final year project which involves the use of MATLAB. In particular I need to use the NNToolbox. I am having great difficulty using it and would like some advice from more experienced users to help me. Ok here is a brief description of my assignment: 1.I have transcribed a list of names into phonetic format using the IPA(International Phonetic Alphabet). Each name is made up of phonetic symbols. In total there are 54. 2.Each symbol is numbered: the first as 0 and the last as 54, working like an index. 3...

Hi, I will be generating a MSI-package that installs a project which requires that Matlab and the Neural Network Toolbox is installed. Anyone knows about the best way to check if these two products are installed; i.e. via registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall or existing of specific files? Thanks in advance Jens Try typing a = ver('nnet'); If a is empty, nnet tb isn't installed: otherwise a will hold the version info of the toolbox.

Hello , I work for a small transporting company, our clients send us pick-up adressess by fax and by e-mail. We give every pick up order a number, chronologically in the way we receive the orders. Than,we make a table in which we type every pick-up order. Afterwards, we give every driver a number of pick-ups. We also give the drivers a list with all the adressess. To make these lists, we make a query (which results in a report) for every driver. In the query we type in all the numbers (the pick up numbers) Everything works very well, BUT for example: we get 3 pick up orders : we give it numbers 1 , 2 , and 3 We want the driver to go to 1, than 3, and than 2 So I type in the query : 1 or 3 or 2 BUT it does not appear 1-3-2 it appears 1 - 2 - 3 !! But I want it to appear 1-3-2 , in that order! Is there a possibility to make it appear in this way?? Thank you very much for your help Philippe *** Sent via Devdex http://www.devdex.com *** Don't just participate in USENET...get rewarded for it!

Hi , I have been asked to design a neural network in matlab that takes vectors of handwritten digits as the training data. Then I have been given some testing data to see if the network works. The data is of the form 47,100, 27, 81, 57, 37, 26, 0, 0, 23, 56, 53,100, 90, 40, 98, 8 for the number 8 and I have over 7000 of these. I have absolutely no idea how to get matlab to do this as I have only just started using it any useful guides or links could really help as I am really stressing over it.
