The New Network dialog is used for the creation and growth of a new neural network from the values in the Grid. During optimization a new network is created every time the period of cycles or seconds completes. The number of hidden nodes in each layer that is checked grows from minimum to maximum. Each network is checked by training it for a short period. The network that produces the lowest error is selected for further training and validating.
Frameworks can be created without connections if the Network Editor is to be used.
A network is produced when the cycles or seconds elapses until the optimum network is found.
If checked all connections are created automatically. If not checked the optimum number of nodes will be created but not connected together. This is so that the network editor can be used to produce complex configurations.
