This package allows creation, training, and testing of ART and ARTMAP neural networks.
ART_Calculate_Match(input, weightVector)
function match = ART_Calculate_Match(input, weightVector)
% ART_Calculate_Match Calculates the match value of an input to a category.
% MATCH = ART_Calculate_Match(INPUT, WEIGHTVECTOR)
% This function returns a value which represents the amount of match
% between the given input and the given category.
%
% The input parameters are as follows:
% The INPUT is a vector of size NumFeatures that contains the input
% signal into the network. The WEIGHTVECTOR is a matrix of size
% NumFeatures which holds the weights of the network for a given
% category. The length of the INPUT vector must equal the length of
% the WEIGHTVECTOR.
%
% The return parameter is as follows:
% The MATCH is a measure of the degree of match between the input
% and the current category.
% Initialize the local variables.
match = 0;
numFeatures = length(input);
% Make sure the weight vector is appropriate for the input.
if(numFeatures ~= length(weightVector))
error('The input and weight vector lengths do not match.');
end
% Calculate the match between the given input and weight vector.
% This is done according to the following equation:
% Match = |Input^WeightVector| / |Input|
matchVector = min(input, weightVector);
inputLength = sum(input);
if(inputLength == 0)
match = 0;
else
match = sum(matchVector) / inputLength;
end
