Interpretation of models induced by artificial neural networks is often a difficult task. In this paper we focus on a relatively novel neural network architecture and learning algorithm, bp-som that offers possibilities to overcome this difficulty. It is shown that networks trained with BP-SOM show interesting regularities, in that hidden-unit activations become restricted to discrete values, and that the som part can be exploited for automatic rule extraction.
