In class, we trained a backpropagation network to predict a
affiliation based on survey data. For this assignment, you are to
similarly train a
backpropagation network using the data you obtained for Homework 4. Recall
that you had to obtain a data collection and use the ID3 algorithm to build a
decision tree for classifying samples from that collection. Now, you are to
adapt that data to a neural network model, using the
backpropogation applet we experimented with in class.
You will need to select a subset of samples from your data collection and use
them to train a network. Then, test the resulting network on remaining samples
and see how well it does in classifying the results. Provide a screenshot or drawing of your trained network and commentary on its effectivess.
