A new type of feedforward multilayer neural net is proposed that exhibits fast convergence properties. It is defined by inserting a fast adaptive Gram-Schmidt preprocessor at each layer, followed by a conventional linear combiner-sigmoid part which is adapted by a fast version of the backpropagation rule. The resulting network structure is the multilayer generalization of the gradient adaptive lattice filter and the Gram-Schmidt adaptive array.
