Abstract

Hierarchical Bayesian inference in parameterised models offers an approach for controlling complexity. In this paper we utilise a novel prior for the leaning of a model’s structure. We call the prior *node relevance determination*. It is applicable in a range of models including sigmoid belief networks and Boltzmann machines. We demonstrate how the approach may be applied to determine structure in a multi-layer perceptron.
