Abstract : This paper deals with two facets of the committee problem; i.e., the problem of determining the values of the two sets of weights in a two-layer learning machine consisting of threshold elements to classify correctly a set of patterns into two categories, where the first layer weights are considered committee members and the second layer is considered the committee solution. The first facet involves the existence of a solution committee and the description of various properties of a solution committee. The second facet involves finding an algorithm for locating the members of a solution committee and assigning an evaluation to the vote for each member. As yet, no satisfactory algorithm is known for simultaneously locating committee members and assigning weights to their votes. (Author)
