Neural Trees: Using Neural Nets in a Tree Classifier Structure
1991 (English)Report (Other academic)
The concept of tree classifiers is combined with the popular neural net structure. Instead of having one large neural net to capture all the regions in the feature space, the authors suggest the compromise of using small single-output nets at each tree node. This hybrid classifier is referred to as a neural tree. The performance of this classifier is evaluated on real data from a problem in speech recognition. When verified on this particular problem, it turns out that the classifier concept drastically reduces the computational complexity compared with conventional multilevel neural nets. It is also noted that these data make it possible to grow trees online from a continuous data stream.
