Deep belief nets are one of the most exciting recent developments in artificial intelligence. The structure of these elegant models is much closer to that of human brains than traditional neural networks; they have a 'thought process' that is capable of learning abstract concepts built from simpler primitives. A typical deep belief net can learn to recognize complex patterns by optimizing millions of parameters, yet this model can still be resistant to overfitting. This book presents the essential building blocks of a common and powerful form of deep belief net: the autoencoder. Volume II takes this topic beyond current usage by extending it to the complex domain, which is useful for many signal and image processing applications. Several algorithms for preprocessing time series and image data are also presented. These algorithms focus on the creation of complex-domain predictors that are suitable for input to a complex-domain autoencoder. Finally, this book provides a method for embedding class information in the input layer of a restricted Boltzmann machine. This facilitates generative display of samples from individual classes rather than the entire data distribution. The ability to see the features that the model has learned for each class separately can be invaluable. At each step the text provides intuitive motivation, a summary of the most important equations relevant to the topic, and concludes with highly commented code for threaded computation on modern CPUs as well as massive parallel processing on computers with CUDA-capable video display cards. Source code for all routines presented in the book, and the DEEP program which implements these algorithms, are available for free download from the author's website.

Discover hidden relationships among the variables in your data, and learn how to exploit these relationships. This book presents a collection of data-mining algorithms that are effective in a wide variety of prediction and classification applications. All algorithms include an intuitive explanation of operation, essential equations, references to more rigorous theory, and commented C++ source code. Many of these techniques are recent developments, still not in widespread use. Others are standard algorithms given a fresh look. In every case, the focus is on practical applicability, with all code written in such a way that it can easily be included into any program. The Windows-based DATAMINE program lets you experiment with the techniques before incorporating them into your own work. What You'll Learn Use Monte-Carlo permutation tests to provide statistically sound assessments of relationships present in your data Discover how combinatorially symmetric cross validation reveals whether your model has true power or has just learned noise by overfitting the data Work with feature weighting as regularized energy-based learning to rank variables according to their predictive power when there is too little data for traditional methods See how the eigenstructure of a dataset enables clustering of variables into groups that exist only within meaningful subspaces of the data Plot regions of the variable space where there is disagreement between marginal and actual densities, or where contribution to mutual information is high Who This Book Is For Anyone interested in discovering and exploiting relationships among variables. Although all code examples are written in C++, the algorithms are described in sufficient detail that they can easily be programmed in any language.

Assess the quality of your prediction and classification models in ways that accurately reflect their real-world performance, and then improve this performance using state-of-the-art algorithms such as committee-based decision making, resampling the dataset, and boosting. This book presents many important techniques for building powerful, robust models and quantifying their expected behavior when put to work in your application. Considerable attention is given to information theory, especially as it relates to discovering and exploiting relationships between variables employed by your models. This presentation of an often confusing subject avoids advanced mathematics, focusing instead on concepts easily understood by those with modest background in mathematics. All algorithms include an intuitive explanation of operation, essential equations, references to more rigorous theory, and commented C++ source code. Many of these techniques are recent developments, still not in widespread use. Others are standard algorithms given a fresh look. In every case, the emphasis is on practical applicability, with all code written in such a way that it can easily be included in any program. What You'll Learn Compute entropy to detect problematic predictors Improve numeric predictions using constrained and unconstrained combinations, variance-weighted interpolation, and kernel-regression smoothing Carry out classification decisions using Borda counts, MinMax and MaxMin rules, union and intersection rules, logistic regression, selection by local accuracy, maximization of the fuzzy integral, and pairwise coupling Harness information-theoretic techniques to rapidly screen large numbers of candidate predictors, identifying those that are especially promising Use Monte-Carlo permutation methods to assess the role of good luck in performance results Compute confidence and tolerance intervals for predictions, as well as confidence levels for classification decisions Who This Book is For Anyone who creates prediction or classification models will find a wealth of useful algorithms in this book.

Source code for all routines presented in the book, and the executable CONVNET program which implements these algorithms, are available for free download from the author's website. Source code for the complete CONVNET program is not available, as much of it is highly specialized Windows interface code. Readers are responsible for writing their own main program, with all interface routines. You may freely use all of the core convolutional net routines in this book, as long as you remember that it is experimental code that comes with absolutely no guaranty of correct operation.

This text serves as a cookbook for neural network solutions to practical problems using C++. It will enable those with moderate programming experience to select a neural network model appropriate to solving a particular problem, and to produce a working program implementing that network. The book provides guidance along the entire problem-solving path, including designing the training set, preprocessing variables, training and validating the network, and evaluating its performance. Though the book is not intended as a general course in neural networks, no background in neural works is assumed and all models are presented from the ground up. The principle focus of the book is the three layer feedforward network, for more than a decade as the workhorse of professional arsenals. Other network models with strong performance records are also included. Bound in the book is an IBM diskette that includes the source code for all programs in the book. Much of this code can be easily adapted to C compilers. In addition, the operation of all programs is thoroughly discussed both in the text and in the comments within the code to facilitate translation to other languages.
