A multi-scale radial basis function neural network

Collaborators: Dr. Giorgos Mountrakis Funders: University of Maine covered patent application fees. Motivation: One of the constraints of radial basis function (RBF) neural networks revolves around the ability to combine local functions of variable spreads. Development of a multi-scale RBF would allow RBFs to exhibit their full potential in regression […]
