Ridge Regression using Artificial Neural Network


  • University of Kufa, Iraq


In this paper, a new suggested method using Ridge Neural Network (RNN) is presented to improve estimation based on using Ridge Regression method (RR). We compared between the proposed method and the existing back propagation algorithm of Artificial Neural Network (ANNs) by using Mean Square Error (MSE). The approach has been simulated using MATLAB. The results showed that the suggested method has the good performance in the sense that RNN method gives less error.
