Summary:
Backpropagation is a standard algorithm that is widely employed in many neural networks. Due to its wide acceptance and implementation, a standard benchmark for evaluating the performance of the algorithm is a handy tool for software design and development. The object of this thesis is to propose the use of the classic XOR problem for the performance evaluation of the backpropagation algorithm, with some variations on the input data sets. This thesis covers background work in this area and discusses the results obtained by other researchers. A series of test cases are then developed and run to perform the performance analysis of the backpropagation algorithm. As the performance of the networks depends strongly on the inputs, the effect of variation of the design parameters for the networks are evaluated and discussed.
