I have $N$ number of teachers each of which has an input feature vector ($25$ dimensional) consisting of positive numerical values for different quality of aspects (for example: lecturing ability, knowledge capacity, communication skills, etc.). I want to design an ANN to output a single quality index based on these quality features.

What type of ANN architecture is appropriate for this problem?

  • $\begingroup$ no, but still for some specific problems it is well-known that some architectures work better. $\endgroup$ May 5, 2021 at 18:22

It sounds like you have structured/tabular data. So, a fully-connected feedforward network should do the job.

  • $\begingroup$ What does structured/tabular data mean? are all data not structured/tabular? $\endgroup$ May 5, 2021 at 19:59
  • $\begingroup$ @user3489173 Nope. Text data isn't tabular for example. $\endgroup$
