A new adaptive Higher Order Neural Network (HONN) is introduced and applied in data mining tasks such as determining automobile yearly losses and edible mushrooms. Experiments demonstrate that the new adaptive HONN model offers advantages over conventional Artificial Neural Network (ANN) models such as higher generalization capability and the ability in handling missing values in a dataset. A new approach for determining the best number of hidden neurons is also proposed.
