Geocomputation: ANNs In this presentation on geocomputation:

Geocomputation: Evolutionary computing

Geocomputation Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs)
A computational model based on emulating biological neural networks A form of non-linear modelling tool Often a 3-layer network structure is used: input, hidden, output The output layer of such structures are typically modified weighted sums of intermediate layers, which are modified weighted sums of the input layer 3rd edition

Artificial Neural Networks
Hence at each output node (hidden or final) a two-step process takes place: 3rd edition

Artificial Neural Networks
Simple 3-layer feedforward ANN Fully inter-connected; each connection is given a weight, w Known as a Multi-level perceptron (MLP) In this case: 3 input nodes, 5 hidden nodes, 2 output nodes and 2 bias nodes (bias, B, is similar to the constant term in regression models) At hidden node 1 we have: where the wij are weights to be determined, b1=1, and the xi are the observed input values 3rd edition

Artificial Neural Networks
Sample activation functions is simply a linear weighted sum of the inputs. To generate a non-linear output it must be modified by some (well behaved) non-linear function, g(), e.g. the logistic function: i.e. 3rd edition

Artificial Neural Networks
We can now compute the output layer values as the weighted sum Suppose we have known input values x1=1, x2=-3, x3=5, and known outputs of 0 and 1. Can we select the weights to ensure the inputs generate the known outputs? Suggestion: <build your own worked example & program here> 3rd edition

Artificial Neural Networks
Learning Supervised learning Split training/test data sets (control data) Known inputs and output (target) values for training data (Network output-Target output) = Error signal, e Systematically adjust weights to minimise sum of e2 Adjustment typically based on backpropagation and gradient descent Used in many classification/pattern recognition applications and in function approximation Unsupervised learning No training data Must create clusters by analysing dataset for patterns/clusters 3rd edition

Genetic Algorithms Solutions are represented as individuals
Individuals are modelled as chromosomes Chromosomes are comprised of genes Genes have values known as alleles Chromosomes have a measurable fitness New chromosomes (children) are created by reproduction and mutation processes The fittest individuals survive The creation process is then iterated 3rd edition

Genetic Algorithms GAs: Example 1 - TSP
allele=12 (ID of town in TSP problem set) chromosome genes Each chromosome contains complete list of towns create a set of m randomly permuted strings and compute lengths, d evaluate the fitness of each string (e.g. 1/d) select random pairs of tours (biased by fitness) combine pairs by crossover operation evaluate fitness of offspring apply replacement rule (fittest retained) and iterate till stable 3rd edition

Genetic Algorithms GA components
Encoding or representation – binary, list, tree etc Fitness function selection – use of rank transforms Population initialisation Selection: roulette, tournament, uniform random Reproduction Crossover e.g. A = [a b c d e f g h] B = [ ] and the crossover point is 3, the following children are generated: child 1 = [a b c ] child 2= [1 2 3 d e f g h] Mutation Local search Termination 3rd edition

Genetic Algorithms GAs: application areas TSP (as above) Clustering
Map labelling Optimum location with capacity constraints Concept can be extended to alleles that are expressions or program elements rather than numerical values  Genetic programming 3rd edition
