Learning and Generalization

  • Neural networks have two important aspects to fulfill:
    • They must learn decision surfaces from training data, so that training data (and test data) are classified correctly;
    • They must be able to generalize based on the learning process, in order to classify data sets it has never seen before.
  • Note that there is an important trade-off between the learning behavior and the generalization of a neural network (called over-fitting)
  • The better a network learns to successfully classify a training sequence (that might contain errors) the less flexible it is with respect to arbitrary data.
