Neural Network - How to use a custom training function
18 views (last 30 days)
Is it possible to replace standard matlab training methods (like Gradient Descent, Levenberg-Marquardt, etc.) by other methods of global optimization, like Particle Swarm Optimization or Simulated Annealing?
I was looking at C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2018a\toolbox\nnet\nnet\nntrain\... for some clues, but nothing comes up...
Attached are two original files of the mentioned training functions ( traingd and trainlm ).

Use the help and doc commands on
There may be more, my website search using "trainfcn" was very brief.
Thank you for formally accepting my answer

I have not tried, but I think it might work,
Please try the following command:
net.trainFcn = 'custom_function_name';
net is your network name.
trainFcn is property to the name of the corresponding function
custom_function_name is training function defined by you
(I hope it might help you)
