To the best of our knowledge,

Dendritic neural model

(树突状神经元模型)

is the fastest machine learning technique

in the literature.

Dendritic Neuron Model

Dendritic Neuron Model (DNM) is a novel single neuron model with plastic dendritic morphology. Inspired by biological phenomena of neurons in vivo. the neural structure of DNM is composed of four layers, namely, the synaptic layer, the dendritic layer, the membrane layer and the cell body. Each layer owns diverse excitation functions to carry out corresponding neural functions. Theoretical and empirical evidence demonstrates the DNM can provide satisfactory performances on various practical applications, such as computer-aided medical diagnosis, business risk assessment and financial time series prediction.

Distinctive Features of the DNM

There are numbers of distinctive features distinguishing the DNM from other conventional artificial neural networks, which have been summarized below:
