5. Neural Networks as Universal Approximators • Feedforward neural networks with a single hidden layer of sigmoidal units are capable of approximating uniformly any continuous multivariate function, to any desired degree of accuracy. • Hornik, K., Stinchcombe, M., and White, H. (1989). "Multilayer Feedforward Networks are Universal Approximators," Neural Networks, 2(5), 359-366. • Like feedforward neural networks with a single hidden layer of sigmoidal units, it can be shown that RBF networks are universal approximators. • Park, J. and Sandberg, I.
