sTrainSeq: Function to implement training via sequential algorithm

Description

sTrainSeq is supposed to perform sequential training algorithm. It requires three inputs: a "sMap" or "sInit" object, input data, and a "sTrain" object specifying training environment. The training is implemented iteratively, each training cycle consisting of: i) randomly choose one input vector; ii) determine the winner hexagon/rectangle (BMH) according to minimum distance of codebook matrix to the input vector; ii) update the codebook matrix of the BMH and its neighbors via updating formula (see "Note" below for details). It also returns an object of class "sMap".

Usage

1
sTrainSeq(sMap, data, sTrain, verbose = T)

Arguments

sMap

an object of class "sMap" or "sInit"

data

a data frame or matrix of input data

sTrain

an object of class "sTrain"

verbose

logical to indicate whether the messages will be displayed in the screen. By default, it sets to TRUE for display

Value

an object of class "sMap", a list with following components:

Note

Updating formula is: m_i(t+1) = m_i(t) + α(t)*h_{wi}(t)*[x(t)-m_i(t)], where

# 1) generate an iid normal random matrix of 100x10 
data <- matrix( rnorm(100*10,mean=0,sd=1), nrow=100, ncol=10)

# 2) from this input matrix, determine nHex=5*sqrt(nrow(data))=50, 
# but it returns nHex=61, via "sHexGrid(nHex=50)", to make sure a supra-hexagonal grid
sTopol <- sTopology(data=data, lattice="hexa", shape="suprahex")

# 3) initialise the codebook matrix using "uniform" method
sI <- sInitial(data=data, sTopol=sTopol, init="uniform")

# 4) define trainology at "rough" stage
sT_rough <- sTrainology(sMap=sI, data=data, algorithm="sequential",
stage="rough")

# 5) training at "rough" stage
sM_rough <- sTrainSeq(sMap=sI, data=data, sTrain=sT_rough)

# 6) define trainology at "finetune" stage
sT_finetune <- sTrainology(sMap=sI, data=data, algorithm="sequential",
stage="finetune")

# 7) training at "finetune" stage
sM_finetune <- sTrainSeq(sMap=sM_rough, data=data, sTrain=sT_rough)
