Mixture Density Networks (MDNs) are a well-established method for modelling complex multi-valued functions where regression methods (such as MLPs) fail. In this paper we develop a Bayesian regularization method for MDNs by an extension of the evidence procedure. The method is tested on two data sets and compared with early stopping.
