Learning ability of networks in the recognition of vocabulary, etc. using neural networks is notably influenced by the unit number of intermediate layers. In our current study, we have investigated the effects when the unit number of intermediate layers is changed during the course of learning when back-propagation is applied, thereby discussing eventual influence on the learning ability of networks.
