Abstract

We propose a threshold-varying artificial neural network (TV-ANN) approach for solving the binary classification problem. Using a set of simulated and real-world data set for bankruptcy prediction, we illustrate that the proposed TV-ANN fares well, both for training and holdout samples, when compared to the traditional backpropagation artificial neural network (ANN) and the statistical linear discriminant analysis. The performance comparisons of TV-ANN with a genetic algorithm-based ANN and a classification tree approach C4.5 resulted in mixed results.
