"More neurons in hidden layer wont increase/decrease neural network performance"
i used the search function but found nothing.
I'm using RapidMiner 5.1.003
Data Mining Setup is as following:
i've used 7 different datasets from the uci repository (wine,adult,krkrpa7,iris,house-votes-84, heart-cleveland and zoo) for a classification task. In all of those i meassured performance using cross-validation (10 validations, shuffled or linear sampling)
In all of those i was wondering why an increase in hidden layer neurons wont have any impact on the result. With more hidden neurons it should perform better unless it's overfitting. Am i wrong somewhere?Is this just concerning the free community edition?
The neural network model in average works fine, i was just wondering why there is no slight increase/decrease in performance.
thanks for reading & have a nice day
