Included in this package are two directories: ART and ARTMAP. The ART directory provides the functionality for creating and using an unsupervised neural network based on the Adaptive Resonance Theory of Grossberg and Carpenter. The ARTMAP directory provides the functionality for creating and using a supervised neural network, also based on Adaptive Resonance Theory.
The ARTMAP implementation makes use of a few of the ART functions.
These files were developed and tested under MATLAB 6.1 (R12.1) only.
I think there some thing wrong in Fuzzy ART code. Because, When I trained with first data, its categorize to n1, and the seconde data is categorize to n2, but when I combine to data to network, it carry out N group very large compaire to n1+n2.
I think there are some drawbacks. first, updating weights is not correct. second, when an input does not belong to any of the categories, the program return the -1 value. third, ART is on-line neural network that can be trained by off-line method. when we use categorization function instead of learn function, just one category is determined by the program and it is not correct. if someone can explain these drawbacks, i'll be glad.
Excellent work but I have a question. It seams that in the ART algorithm (not ARTMAP), the analog input vector requires some short of normalization. It does not function properly if the input values exceed a certain number (around 1.5). If there are input components above that value, the output of the algorithm is -1 meaning that this input does not belong to any of the available categories. Please advise of what is going on.
I Think: Is a very good aplication.
But when a data doesn't belong to one of the learnig clases, the output of the net is -1.
I'm doing some tests in a very big bucle (aprox 4000 iterations) changing (diferentially) the net.vigilance and changing the number of clases, in an application for clasify. The classes are obtained for randomly genertating the attributes.
I found: small changes in the net.vigilance have strong implications in performance of the network.

Estoy interesada ehn obtener información sobre el material que se utilizo para la implementación, quiero agregarle otras cosas pero no tengo documentación..
