2.4.5.   Kohonen Neural Networks

An interesting approach for splitting a data set into two subsets is the application of Kohonen neural networks [26],[27],[50]. These networks with two layers are unsupervised networks, which can be used as 2-dimensional mapping method. For the repartitioning, a Kohonen network is trained using the complete data set. Then, for each neuron a specific number of samples which excited this neuron during training, are selected for the first data set. The other samples are used for the second data set. This approach allows a very efficient distribution of the samples into subsets that cover the complete variable space.

Yet, using Kohonen networks for several subsampling runs is difficult, as the creation of different selection rules for samples exciting a neuron is rather subjective for an arbitrary number of runs and needs user input from data set to data set.
