The sandglass neural network is often used for nonlinear auto-association, where the principal information can be extracted by picking up the values of the middle layer. However, the boundary of the classes on this 2-1) surface tends to be complicated because no class information is used. In this paper, the hybridization of auto-associative network and the multi-layer perceptron for classification is proposed. The usefulness of this method is demonstrated by using clinical data.
