Neural Network Training

This question is answered

When you perform a neural network analysis and tell Statistica to train 20 networks and retain 5 of them, for example, how does it decide which base functions to attempt to use?  Is it just random or does it make some sort of guess as to which ones will be best?

  • It is random, not just with network types, but also activation functions and error functions.  It trains as many as you specify, and then keeps the top performing networks.
