back-propagation algorithm, supervised learning method.


The standard back-propagation algorithm is one of the most widely used algorithm for training feed-forward neural networks. One major drawback of this algorithm is it might fall into local minima and slow convergence rate. Natural gradient descent is principal method for solving nonlinear function is presented and is combined with the modified back-propagation algorithm yielding a new fast training multilayer algorithm. This paper describes new approach to natural gradient learning in which the number of parameters necessary is much smaller than the natural gradient algorithm. This new method exploits the algebraic structure of the parameter space to reduce the space and time complexity of algorithm and improve its performance.
