This paper proposes an efficient method for improving the training performance of the neural network by using a hybrid of a stochastic approximation and a backpropagation algorithm. The proposed method improves the performance of the training by appliying a global optimization method which is a hybrid of a stochastic approximation and a backpropagation algorithm. The approximate initial point for a stochastic approximation and a backpropagation algorihtm. The approximate initial point for fast global optimization is estimated first by applying the stochastic approximation, and then the backpropagation algorithm, which is the fast gradient descent method, is applied for a high speed global optimization. And further speed-up of training is made possible by adjusting the training parameters of each of the output and the hidden layer adaptively to the standard deviation of the neuron output of each layer. The proposed method has been applied to the parity checking and the pattern classification, and the simulation results show that the performance of the proposed method is superior to that of the backpropagation, the Baba's MROM, and the Sun's method with randomized initial point settings. The results of adaptive adjusting of the training parameters show that the proposed method further improves the convergence speed about 20% in training.
