I see that with the xgboost library, we can tell the training process that some features are necessarily monotonic with the model's output - https://xgboost.readthedocs.io/en/latest/tutorials/monotonic.html. This forces the training procedure to avoid exploring models where there isn't a monotonic relationship between the given features and the output, which saves resources and improves accuracy. I wonder if such an option is available with neural nets? Plus, are there any papers testing improved accuracy of using this (with neural nets or other models)?
