    Abstract

    How can cerebellar model neural networks be successfully applied to automated classification? Simple modifications and a new training scheme are applied to the Cerebellar Model Articulation Controller (CMAC). This results in a classifier with fast training time, guaranteed convergence and a small number of parameters. How can model parameters be set to achieve optimum classifier accuracy, without lengthy empirical trials? A consideration of the most significant sources of classification error results in a simple method for estimating the optimum range for the parameters. The method is tested using empirical trials, and shown to be reliable. This makes the modified CMAC a desirable choice for automated classification in the context of pattern recognition and data mining.
