dc.description.abstract We present a novel training algorithm for a feed forward neural network with a single hidden layer of nodes (i.e., two layers of connection weights). Our algorithm is capable of training networks for hard problems, such as the classic two-spirals problem. The weights in the first layer are determined using a quasirandom number generator. These weights are frozen---they are never modified during the training process. The second layer of weights is trained as a simple linear discriminator using methods such as the pseudo-inverse, with possible iterations. We also study the problem of reducing the hidden layer: pruning low-weight nodes and a genetic algorithm search for good subsets. en_US
