Feedforward neural network Matlab code

A Grid Search for The Optimal Setting in Feed-Forward Neural Networks
for the example

The feed-forward neural network is a very powerful classification model in the machine learning content. Since the goodness-of-fit of a neural network is majorly dominated by the model complexity, it is very tempting for a modeler to over-parameterize the neural network by using too many hidden layers or/and hidden units.

As pointed out by Brian Ripley in his famous book “Modern Applied Statistics with S”, the complexity of a neural network can be regulated by a hyper-parameter called “weight decay” to penalize the weights of hidden units. Per Ripley, the use of weight decay can both help the optimization process and avoid the over-fitting.

Up till now, it becomes clear that the balance between the network complexity and the size of weight decay should form the optimal setting for a neural network. The only question remained is how to identify such a combination. In the real world, practitioners usually would use v-folder or cross-sample validation. However, given the expensive computing cost of a neural network, the cross-sample validation seems more efficient then the v-folder. In addition, due to the presence of local minimum, the validation result from a set of averaged models instead of a single model is deemed more reliable.

Serves you right, fuckers!

The initial public offering of a computerized stock exchange turned into a major debacle on Friday as a software glitch sent its shares plunging to a fraction of a cent in a matter of seconds, leading it to scotch the IPO.
On Thursday night, BATS had priced the sale of 6.3 million of its shares at $16 apiece, for a total offering of over $100 million. But when shares started trading on Friday morning on its own exchange, they instantly plunged and trading was halted.
Within nine-tenths of a second from that opening, BATS stock had fallen to about 28 cents, according to Nanex, a stock-market data tracker. Within 1.5 seconds, the price bottomed at...
