Near Optimal Learning Rate BP Algorithm and its Application in Traffic Forecast
Aimed at the inadequacy of the standard BP algorithm, a near optimal learning rate BP algorithm (NOLRBP) is presented. Selecting the learning rate of the algorithm based on one-dimensional search algorithm of optimization theory avoids the blindness in determining the learning rate. Simulations show that the algorithm is superior to the standard BP algorithm (SDBP), momentum BP algorithm (MOBP) and variable learning rate BP algorithm (VLBP).
