Abstract: This study presents a novel Adaptive resonance theory-Counterpropagation neural network (ART-CPN) for solving forecasting problems. The network is based on the ART concept and the CPN learning algorithm for constructing the neural network. The vigilance parameter is used to automatically generate the nodes of the cluster layer for the CPN learning process. This process improves the initial weight problem and the adaptive nodes of the cluster layer (Kohonen layer). ART-CPN involves real-time learning and is capable of developing a more stable and plastic prediction model of input patterns by self-organization. The advantages of ART-CPN include the ability to cluster, learn and construct the network model for forecasting problems. The network was applied to solve the real forecasting problems. The learning algorithm revealed better learning efficiency and good prediction performance.
