This quantity collects jointly refereed types of twenty-five papers provided on the 4th Neural Computation and Psychology Workshop, held at collage collage London in April 1997. The "NCPW" workshop sequence is now good proven as a full of life discussion board which brings jointly researchers from such various disciplines as synthetic intelligence, arithmetic, cognitive technological know-how, machine technology, neurobiology, philosophy and psychology to debate their paintings on connectionist modelling in psychology. the overall subject of this fourth workshop within the sequence used to be "Connectionist Repre­ sentations", a subject matter which not just attracted individuals from these types of fields, yet from allover the realm to boot. From the perspective of the convention organisers targeting representational concerns had the virtue that it instantly concerned researchers from all branches of neural computation. Being so significant either to psychology and to connectionist modelling, it really is one quarter approximately which every person within the box has their very own robust perspectives, and the range and caliber of the shows and, simply as importantly, the dialogue which them, definitely attested to this.

As expected, the network learns the distorted patterns, and generalizes to treat the undistorted patterns correctly. Figure 5 shows the percentage of training and test patterns correctly classified after a fixed amount of training, for various fixed norm weights. As the norm weight increases the network overfits the training patterns. In this case all of the training patterns are classified correctly but none of the test patterns is correctly classified. With a small norm weight all of the RBFs have large receptive fields and therefore a significant response to all of the training and test patterns.

PM} in N-dimension space, called sites, corresponds to a partition of the space into 50 Figure 2: Voronoi Diagram, Delaunay Triangulation of the input domain convex regions, called Voronoi cells. Each cell represents a "region of influence" surrounding each site. In two dimensions the Voronoi cells are convex polygons whose edges agree with the perpendicular bisectors of the Delaunay triangle edges joining neighbouring sites. The triangulation results from connecting each pair of data sites that share a common Voronoi region boundary.

This can be achieved with an MLP network if every weight vector is computed as the normal to each of the surfaces in the input domain that will induce the same sort of partitioning that is engendered by the classification criteria associated to the problem for which the network has been built. As the Delaunay Triangulation (DT) of a set of points is a geometric structure in which everything one would ever want to know about the proximity of the points from which it was derived is recorded, it provides an ideal source of information for computing the number and form of those weight vectors, enabling the possibility of building an initial maximal network architecture for a particular problem.
