 Title:

 Training and Optimization of Product Unit Neural Networks

 Abstract:

Product units in the hidden layer of multilayer neural networks provide a pwerful mechanism for neural networks to efficiently learn higher-order combinations of inputs. Training product unit neural networks using local optimization algorithms is difficult due to an increased number of local minima and increased chances of network paralysis. This research investigates the problems using local optimization, especially gradient descent, to train product unit neural networks, and shows that particle swarm optimization, genetic algorithms and leapfrog are efficient alternatives to successfully train product unit neural networks. Architecture selection, i.e. pruning, of product unit neural networks is also studied and a pruning algorithm developed.
