In this paper a new neural network model for blind demixing of nonlinear mixtures is proposed. We address the use of the adaptive spline neural network recently introduced for supervised and unsupervised neural networks. These networks are built using neurons with flexible B-spline activation functions and in order to separate signals from mixtures, a gradient-ascending algorithm which maximizes the outputs entropy is derived. In particular a suitable architecture composed by two layers of flexible nonlinear functions for the separation of nonlinear mixtures is proposed. Some experimental results that demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed neural architecture are presented.
