How to set the number of hidden layers for neural network? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I am using "Multiclass Neural Network" to build a model. I can configure number of hidden nodes, iterations etc., but I couldn't find anything to configure number of hidden layers. How to configure the number of hidden layers in Azure ML?

  • For a custom net definition, Neeraj's answer is the way to go.

    If you simply want a fully-connected case, you can simply add more hidden layers in a comma-separated list:

    100,50,100 would be 3 hidden layers with 100, 50, 100 nodes, respectively.

    Hope that helps!
