Neural Networks as Functional Classifiers

10/09/2020 ∙ by Barinder Thind, et al. ∙ 0

In recent years, there has been considerable innovation in the world of predictive methodologies. This is evident by the relative domination of machine learning approaches in various classification competitions. While these algorithms have excelled at multivariate problems, they have remained dormant in the realm of functional data analysis. We extend notable deep learning methodologies to the domain of functional data for the purpose of classification problems. We highlight the effectiveness of our method in a number of classification applications such as classification of spectrographic data. Moreover, we demonstrate the performance of our classifier through simulation studies in which we compare our approach to the functional linear model and other conventional classification methods.
