Backpropagation equation for a variant on the usual Linear Neuron architecture

Recently I encountered a variant on the normal linear neural layer architecture: Instead of $Z = XW + B$, we now have $Z = (X-A)W + B$. So we have a 'pre-bias' $A$ that affects the activation of the ...

Which online machine learning technique to use for multi-class classification problem with multiple inputs?

I have the following problem. We have $4$ separate discrete inputs, which can take any integer value between $-63$ and $63$. The output is also supposed to be a discrete value between $-63$ and $63$. ...

How to deal with padded inputs in a fully connected feed forward network?

I have a fully connected network that takes in a variable length input padded with 0. However the network doesn't seem to be learning and I am guessing that the high number of zeros in the input ...

Does a varying ANN model accuracy mean underfitting or overfitting?

Background: This is for a simulated robot with four legs, walking on a flat terrain. The ANN (an MLP) is given inputs as the robot's body angle, positions and angle of each leg with respect to the ...

How can an ANN efficiently predict multiple numbers with fixed sum (in other words, proportions)?

I need a neural network (or any other solution) to predict 3 values which sum equals a fixed number (100). This will help me calculate proportions. Which is the most efficient way to do this? The ...
