Radial Basis Function Networks



Radial basis function (RBF) networks represent a fundamentally different architecture from what we have seen in the previous chapters. All the previous chapters use a feed-forward network in which the inputs are transmitted forward from layer to layer in a similar fashion in order to create the final outputs.
