Gradient descent with momentum weight and bias learning function
[dW,LS] = learngdm(W,P,Z,N,A,T,E,gW,gA,D,LP,LS)
info = learngdm('code')
learngdm is the gradient descent with momentum weight and bias learning function.
[dW,LS] = learngdm(W,P,Z,N,A,T,E,gW,gA,D,LP,LS) takes several inputs,
W | S-by-R weight matrix (or S-by-1 bias vector) |
P | R-by-Q input vectors (or ones(1,Q)) |
Z | S-by-Q weighted input vectors |
N | S-by-Q net input vectors |
A | S-by-Q output vectors |
T | S-by-Q layer target vectors |
E | S-by-Q layer error vectors |
gW | S-by-R gradient with respect to performance |
gA | S-by-Q output gradient with respect to performance |
D | S-by-S neuron distances |
LP | Learning parameters, none, LP = [] |
LS | Learning state, initially should be = [] |
and returns
dW | S-by-R weight (or bias) change matrix |
LS | New learning state |
Learning occurs according to learngdm's learning parameters, shown here with their default values.
LP.lr - 0.01 | Learning rate |
LP.mc - 0.9 | Momentum constant |
info = learngdm('code') returns useful information for each code string:
'pnames' | Names of learning parameters |
'pdefaults' | Default learning parameters |
'needg' | Returns 1 if this function uses gW or gA |
Here you define a random gradient G for a weight going to a layer with three neurons from an input with two elements. Also define a learning rate of 0.5 and momentum constant of 0.8:
gW = rand(3,2); lp.lr = 0.5; lp.mc = 0.8;
Because learngdm only needs these values to calculate a weight change (see "Algorithm" below), use them to do so. Use the default initial learning state.
ls = []; [dW,ls] = learngdm([],[],[],[],[],[],[],gW,[],[],lp,ls)
learngdm returns the weight change and a new learning state.
You can create a standard network that uses learngdm with newff, newcf, or newelm.
To prepare the weights and the bias of layer i of a custom network to adapt with learngdm,
Set net.adaptFcn to 'trains'. net.adaptParam automatically becomes trains's default parameters.
Set each net.inputWeights{i,j}.learnFcn to 'learngdm'. Set each net.layerWeights{i,j}.learnFcn to 'learngdm'. Set net.biases{i}.learnFcn to 'learngdm'. Each weight and bias learning parameter property is automatically set to learngdm's default parameters.
To allow the network to adapt,
See help newff or help newcf for examples.
