In this paper, a new competitive learning algorithm called dynamic competitive learning (DCL) is presented. DCL is a supervised learning mehtod that dynamically generates output neuraons and nitializes weight vectors from training patterns. It introduces a new parameter called LOG (limit of garde) to decide whether or not an output neuron is created. In other words, if there exist some neurons in the province of LOG that classify the input vector correctly, then DCL adjusts the weight vector for the neuraon which has the minimum grade. Otherwise, it produces a new output neuron using the given input vector. It is largely learning is not limited only to the winner and the output neurons are dynamically generated int he trining process. In addition, the proposed algorithm has a small number of parameters. Which are easy to be determined and applied to the real problems. Experimental results for patterns recognition of remote sensing data and handwritten numeral data indicate the superiority of dCL in comparison to the conventional competitive learning methods.
