Learning Functions Using Randomized Genetic Code-Like Transformations: Probabilistic Properties and Experimentations
August 2004 (vol. 16 no. 8)
pp. 894-908

Abstract—Inductive learning of nonlinear functions plays an important role in constructing predictive models and classifiers from data. This paper explores a novel randomized approach to construct linear representations of nonlinear functions proposed elsewhere [CHECK END OF SENTENCE], [CHECK END OF SENTENCE]. This approach makes use of randomized codebooks, called the Genetic Code-Like Transformations (GCTs) for constructing an approximately linear representation of a nonlinear target function. This paper first derives some of the results presented elsewhere [CHECK END OF SENTENCE] in a more general context. Next, it investigates different probabilistic and limit properties of GCTs. It also presents several experimental results to demonstrate the potential of this approach.
