Multicolumn RBF Network

This paper proposes the multicolumn RBF network (MCRN) as a method to improve the accuracy and speed of a traditional radial basis function network (RBFN). The MCRN mechanism is constructed based on dividing a dataset into smaller subsets using the k-d tree algorithm. N resultant subsets are considered as separate training datasets to train N individual RBFNs. Those small RBFNs are stacked in parallel and bulged into the MCRN structure during testing. The MCRN is considered as a well-developed and easy-to-use parallel structure, because each individual ANN has been trained on its own subsets and is completely separate from the other ANNs. This parallelized structure reduces the testing time compared with that of a single but larger RBFN, which cannot be easily parallelized due to its fully connected structure. Small informative subsets provide the MCRN with a regional experience to specify the problem instead of generalizing it. The MCRN has been tested on many benchmark datasets and has shown better accuracy and great improvements in training and testing times compared with a single RBFN.

Professional Editing Services

Sometimes TNNLS receives submissions that suffer from poor English usage and readability. Such manuscripts often get rejected because of extremely poor readability. Authors, at their own cost, may now take the help of American Journal Experts for pre-submission professional editing services. An author willing to get assistance with English grammar and usage prior to submitting their manuscript for review or during the review process can go directly to https://www.aje.com/en to submit a manuscript for copy editing. The American Journal Experts copy editors edit for grammar, usage, organization, and clarity, querying potentially substantive revisions as necessary. Various levels of editing services are available. Cost estimates as well as required time are available immediately on line. We cannot guarantee that the linguistic quality of an edited manuscript will meet your expectation. As expected, an edited manuscript will undergo usual reviews.
