Nonlinear blind source separation using a hybrid RBF-FMLP network

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Wai Lok Woo, Professor Satnam Dlay



A novel scheme for blind source separation of nonlinearly mixed signals is developed using a hybrid system based on radial basis function (RBF) and feedforward multilayer perceptron (FMLP) networks. In this paper, the development of the proposed RBF-FMLP network is discussed, which hinges on the theory of nonlinear regularisation. The proposed network uses simultaneously local and global mapping bases to perform both signal separation and reconstruction of continuous signals in addition to signals that exhibit a high degree of fluctuation. The parameters of the proposed system are estimated jointly using the generalised gradient descent approach thereby rendering the training process relatively simple and efficient in computation. Simulations of both synthetic and speech signals have been undertaken to verify the efficacy of the proposed scheme in terms of speed, accuracy and robustness against noise. © IEE, 2005.
