### 前言

Write an up-to-date treatment of neural networks in a comprehensive, thorough, and readable manner.

The new edition has been retitled Neural Networks and Learning Machines, in order to reflect two realities:

1. The perceptron, the multilayer perceptron, self-organizing maps, and neurodynamics, to name a few topics, have always been considered integral parts of neural networks, rooted in ideas inspired by the human brain.

2. Kernel methods, exemplified by support-vector machines and kernel principalcomponents analysis, are rooted in statistical learning theory.

Although, indeed, they share many fundamental concepts and applications, there are some subtle differences between the operations of neural networks and learning machines. The underlying subject matter is therefore much richer when they are studied together, under one umbrella, particularly so when

ideas drawn from neural networks and machine learning are hybridized to perform improved learning tasks beyond the capability of either one operating on its own, and

ideas inspired by the human brain lead to new perspectives wherever they are of particular importance.

Moreover, the scope of the book has been broadened to provide detailed treatments of dynamic programming and sequential state estimation, both of which have affected the study of reinforcement learning and supervised learning, respectively, in significant ways.

Organization of the Book

The book begins with an introductory chapter that is motivational, paving the way for the rest of the book which is organized into six parts as follows:

1. Chapters 1 through 4, constituting the first part of the book, follow the classical approach on supervised learning. Specifically

Chapter 1 describes Rosenblatt's perceptron, highlighting the perceptron convergence theorem, and the relationship between the perceptron and the Bayesian classifier operating in a Gaussian environment.

Chapter 2 describes the method of least squares as a basis for model building. The relationship between this method and Bayesian inference for the special case of a Gaussian environment is established. This chapter also includes a discussion of the minimum description length (MDL) principle for model selection.

Chapter 3 is devoted to the least-mean-square (LMS) algorithm and its convergence analysis. The theoretical framework of the analysis exploits two principles: Kushner's direct method and the Langevin equation (well known in nonequilibrium thermodynamics).

These three chapters, though different in conceptual terms, share a common feature: They are all based on a single computational unit. Most importantly, they provide a great deal of insight into the learning process in their own individual ways--a feature that is exploited in subsequent chapters.

Chapter 4, on the multilayer perceptron, is a generalization of Rosenblatt's perceptron. This rather long chapter covers the following topics:

the back-propagation algorithm, its virtues and limitations, and its role as an optimum method for computing partial derivations;

optimal annealing and adaptive control of the learning rate;

cross-validation;

### 媒体评论

The form of supervised learning we have just described is the basis of error-correction learning. From Fig. 24, we see that the supervised-learning process con-stitutes a closed-loop feedback system, but the unknown environment is outside theloop. As a performance measure for the system, we may think in terms of the mean-square error, or the sum of squared errors over the training sample, defined as a func-tion of the free parameters （i.e., synaptic weights） of the system. This function maybe visualized as a multidimensional error-performance surface, or simply error surface,with the free paiameters as coordinates.The true error surface is averaged over allpossible input-output examples. Any given operation of the system under theteachers supervision is represented as a point on the error surface. For the system toimprove performance over time and therefore learn from the teacher, the operatingpoint has to move down successively toward a minimum point of the error surface;the minimum point may be a local minimum or a global minimum. A supervisedlearning system is able to do this with the useful information it has about the gradient of the error surface corresponding to the current behavior of the system.
