Optimal Pixel-to-Shift Standard Deviation Ratio for Training 2-Layer Perceptron on Shifted 60 × 80 Images with Pixel Distortion in Classifying Shifting-Distorted Objects


An optimization problem of classifying shifting-distorted objects is studied. The classifier is 2-layer perceptron, and the object model is monochrome 60 × 80 image. Based on the fact that previously the perceptron has successfully been attempted to classify shifted objects with a pixel-to-shift standard deviation ratio for training, the ratio is optimized. The optimization criterion is minimization of classification error percentage. A classifier trained under the found optimal ratio is optimized additionally. Then it effectively classifies shifting-distorted images, erring only in one case from eight takings at the maximal shift distortion. On average, classification error percentage appears less than 2.5 %. Thus, the optimized 2-layer perceptron outruns much slower neocognitron. And the found optimal ratio shall be nearly the same for other object classification problems, when the number of object features varies about 4800, and the number of classes is between two and three tens.
