Neural Networks: From Black Box towards Transparent Box Application to Evapotranspiration Modeling
Neural networks are well known for their ability to
model non linear functions, but as statistical methods usually does,
they use a no parametric approach thus, a priori knowledge is not
obvious to be taken into account no more than the a posteriori
knowledge. In order to deal with these problematics, an original way
to encode the knowledge inside the architecture is proposed. This
method is applied to the problem of the evapotranspiration inside
karstic aquifer which is a problem of huge utility in order to deal
with water resource.
