You are using incorrect terminology.
ASSUMPTION: Training, Validation and Test data can be assumed to be random draws from the same probability distribution. TRAINING: Used to estimate weight/bias values VALIDATION(1): Used during training to determine when overtraining an overfit net begins to degenerate the ability to generalize to nontraining data. VALIDATION(2): Used after training to rank multiple designs TEST: Used last to estimate performance on unseen data
considering that the matrix P(test) does not have the same size as the input. is it possible? How? > Every time when i try to simply validate a test input matrix with a differente size i get an error.
If you train a net with node topology I-H-O, the size of any input/target pair must have the form
size(input) = [ I N ]
size(target) = [ O N ]
The resulting output will have the same size as the target.
If you apply the net to unknown data with or without a known target matrix, the input/output pair nust have the form
