We present a novel growing RBF network structure using SOM in this paper. It consists of SOM and RBF networks respectively. The SOM performs unsupervised learning and also the weight vectors belonging to its output nodes are transmitted to the hidden nodes in the RBF networks as the centers of RBF activation functions, as a result one to one correspondence relationship is realized between the output nodes in SOM and the hidden nodes in RBF networks. The RBF networks perform supervised training using delta rule. Therefore, the current output errors in the RBF networks can be used to determine where to insert a new SOM unit according to the rule. This also makes it possible to make the RBF networks grow until a performance criterion is fulfilled or until a desired network size is obtained. The simulations on the two-spirals benchmark are shown to prove the proposed networks have good performance.
