A Clustering Method for Pruning Fully Connected Neural Network

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper focuses mainly on a clustering method for pruning Fully Connected Backpropagation Neural Network (FCBP). The initial neural network is fully connected, after training with sample data, a clustering method is employed to cluster weights between input to hidden layer and from hidden to output layer, and connections that are relatively unnecessary are deleted, thus the initial network becomes a PCBP (Partially Connected Backpropagation) Neural Network. PCBP can be used in prediction or data mining more efficiently than FCBP. At the end of this paper, An experiment is conducted to illustrate the effects of PCBP using the submersible pump repair data set.
