(p.71) Chapter 5 Order Out of Chaos: Order in Neural Networks
In Order to Learn

Peter C. R. Lane

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides details about order effects in neural networks, a commonly used modeling approach. It examines two networks in detail, the Adaptive Resonance Theory (ART) architecture and Jeff Elman's recurrent networks. The ART model shows that about a 25% difference in recognition rates can arise from using different orders. Elman's recurrent network shows that, with the wrong order, a task might not even be learnable. The chapter also discusses why these effects arise, which is important for understanding the impact and claims of computational models.

Keywords:   order effects, neural networks, Adaptive Resonance Theory, recurrent networks, Jeff Elman
