Neural Networks Two Hidden Layers

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

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.

Your child is expected to be

Supported by both parents. However, remember the other parent is supporting the child when she is there. They are feeding the child,paying for activities etc. Whether they have to provide any money to you depends on many factors.You should google the child support calculator for CA.I would first try to work out a parenting plan. If the child can only see the parent once a month,what can you offer in exchange? more time over the summer? extra school breaks? This is not a drastic change but be ready to make up for the lost time. Also, let the other parent know that any time they want to come to CA they are welcome and can go to the activities with the child
