Unsupervised neural network learning procedures for feature extraction and classification
Applied Intelligence, 6(3):185-203.
In this article, we review unsupervised neural network learning procedures which can be applied to the task of preprocessing raw data to extract useful features for subsequent classification. The learning algorithms reviewed here are grouped into three sections: information-preserving methods, density estimation methods, and feature extraction methods. Each of these major sections concludes with a discussion of successful applications of the methods to real-world problems.
