Regularization or Dropout

Postby Lawrence » Mon Jun 06, 2016 2:01 pm

Hi,

I am trying to cut down on the fitting in my net.

Is the ability to use a Regularization parameter (adding a term for every weight in the net) built-in somewhere?

Could you please point me at any documentation.

OR perhaps a Dropout approach is available?

Here it is.

Non of the mentioned features are implemented, since not mentioned explicitly in documentation.
With best regards,
Andrew

Andrew,

Thank you for documentation head.

As you have not implemented Regularization in your excellent library, do you favour an alternative approach to achieving the goal of mitigating over-fitting? If so could you point me in that direction please.
