The neural network ensemble is a learning paradigm where a collection of neural networks is trained for the same task. Generally, the ensemble shows better generalization performance than a single neural network. In this article, a selective neural network ensemble is applied to gait recognition. The proposed method selects some neural network based on the minimization of generalization error. Since the selection rule is directly incorporated into the cost function, we can obtain adequate component networks to constitute an ensemble. Experiments are performed with the NLPR database to show the performance of the proposed algorithm.
