Widrow-Hoff weight/bias learning function
[dW,LS] = learnwh(W,P,Z,N,A,T,E,gW,gA,D,LP,LS)
info = learnwh('code')
learnwh is the Widrow-Hoff weight/bias learning function, and is also known as the delta or least mean squared (LMS) rule.
[dW,LS] = learnwh(W,P,Z,N,A,T,E,gW,gA,D,LP,LS) takes several inputs,
W | S-by-R weight matrix (or b, and 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 weight 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 learnwh's learning parameter, shown here with its default value.
LP.lr — 0.01 | Learning rate |
info = learnwh('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 input P and error E for a layer with a two-element input and three neurons. You also define the learning rate LR learning parameter.
p = rand(2,1); e = rand(3,1); lp.lr = 0.5;
Because learnwh only needs these values to calculate a weight change (see "Algorithm" below), use them to do so.
dW = learnwh([],p,[],[],[],[],e,[],[],[],lp,[])
You can create a standard network that uses learnwh with linearlayer.
To prepare the weights and the bias of layer i of a custom network to learn with learnwh,
Set net.trainFcn to 'trainb'. net.trainParam automatically becomes trainb's default parameters.
Set net.adaptFcn to 'trains'. net.adaptParam automatically becomes trains's default parameters.
Set each net.layerWeights{i,j}.learnFcn to 'learnwh'.
Set net.biases{i}.learnFcn to 'learnwh'. Each weight and bias learning parameter property is automatically set to learnwh's default parameters.
