The natural gradient descent method is applied to train an n-m-1 multilayer perceptron. Based on an efficient scheme to represent the Fisher information matrix for an n-m-1 stochastic multilayer perceptron, a new algorithm is proposed to calculate the natural gradient without inverting the Fisher information matrix explicitly. When the input dimension n is much larger than the number of hidden neurons m, the time complexity of computing the natural gradient is O(n).
