Gating Artificial Neural Network Based Soft Sensor

By Petr Kadlec and Bogdan Gabrys


This work proposes a novel approach to Soft Sensor modelling,\ud where the Soft Sensor is built by a set of experts which are artificial\ud neural networks with randomly generated topology. For each of\ud the experts a meta neural network is trained, the gating Artificial Neural\ud Network. The role of the gating network is to learn the performance of the\ud experts in dependency on the input data samples. The final prediction\ud of the Soft Sensor is a weighted sum of the individual experts predictions.\ud The proposed meta-learning method is evaluated on two different\ud process industry data sets
