11 Stable Learning Rates 
Suppose that the performance index is a quadratic function: Steepest descent algorithm with constant learning rate: A linear dynamic system will be stable if the eigenvalues of the matrix [I-A] are less than one in magnitude.

12 Stable Learning Rates (Quadratic)
Stability is determined by the eigenvalues of this matrix. (i - eigenvalue of A) Eigenvalues of [I - A].

13 Stable Learning Rates 
Let {1, 2,…, n} and {z1,z2,…, zn} be the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the Hessian matrix. Then Condition for the stability of the steepest descent algorithm is then Assume that the quadratic function has a strong minimum point, then its eigenvalues must be positive numbers. Hence, This must be true for all eigenvalues:

15 CHAPTER 10 Widrow-Hoff Learning

16 Objectives Widrow-Hoff learning is an approximate steepest descent algorithm, in which the performance index is mean square error. It is widely used today in many signal processing applications. It is precursor to the backpropagation algorithm for multilayer networks.

17 ADALINE Network ADALINE (Adaptive Linear Neuron) network and its learning rule, LMS (Least Mean Square) algorithm are proposed by Widrow and Marcian Hoff in 1960. Both ADALINE network and the perceptron suffer from the same inherent limitation: they can only solve linearly separable problems. The LMS algorithm minimizes mean square error (MSE), and therefore tires to move the decision boundaries as far from the training patterns as possible.

18 ADALINE Network + + p a W n 1 b p a W n 1 b SR n = Wp + b
a = purelin(Wp + b) + a S1 n 1 b W SR R p R1 S Single-layer perceptron

19 Single ADALINE Set n = 0, then Wp + b = 0 specifies a decision boundary. The ADALINE can be used to classify objects into two categories if they are linearly separable.

20 Mean Square Error The LMS algorithm is an example of supervised training. The LMS algorithm will adjust the weights and biases of the ADALINE in order to minimize the mean square error, where the error is the difference between the target output (tq) and the network output (pq). MSE: E[·]: expected value

28 LMS Algorithm The steepest descent algorithm with constant learning rate  is Matrix notation of LMS algorithm: The LMS algorithm is also referred to as the delta rule or the Widrow-Hoff learning algorithm.

29 Quadratic Functions  General form of quadratic function:
(A: Hessian matrix) If the eigenvalues of the Hessian matrix are all positive, then the quadratic function will have one unique global minimum. ADALINE network mean square error:

30 Orange/Apple Example 
In practical applications, the stable learning rate  might NOT be practical to calculate R, and  could be selected by trial and error.

31 Orange/Apple Example 
Start, arbitrary, with all the weights set to zero, and then will apply input p1, p2, p1, p2, etc., in that order, calculating the new weights after each input is presented.

32 Orange/Apple Example 
This decision boundary falls halfway between the two reference patterns. The perceptron rule did NOT produce such a boundary, The perceptron rule stops as soon as the patterns are correctly classified, even though some patterns may be close to the boundaries. The LMS algorithm minimizes the mean square error.

43 Solved Problem P10.1 The effect of y(0) last from k = 0 through k = 2, so it will have an influence for three time intervals. This corresponds to the length of the impulse response of this filter.
