I once came across a neural network being trained without back-propagation or genetic algorithms (or using any kind of data sets). It was based on how the human brain learns and adjusts its connections between neurones.

What is the name of such machine learning approach?

If it was based on how the human brain learns, it might have used hebbian learning.

One example for such a network would be HTM.

There are approaches to training neural networks that do not use back-propagation, or genetic algorithms. One example is the Extreme Learning Machine approach.

You may find something useful in this older discussion on Cross Validated.

  • $\begingroup$ What approach does ELM then use? I think it would be useful to say something about it. $\endgroup$ – nbro Apr 12 at 21:52
