The neural network is an approach of machine learning by training the connected nodes of a model to predict the results of specific problems. The prediction model is trained by using previously collected training data. In training neural network models, overfitting problems can occur from the excessively dependent training of data and the structural problems of the models. In this paper, we analyze the effect of DropConnect for controlling overfitting in neural networks. It is analyzed according to the DropConnect rates and the number of nodes in designing neural networks. The analysis results of this study help to understand the effect of DropConnect in neural networks. To design an effective neural network model, the DropConnect can be applied with appropriate parameters from the understanding of the effect of the DropConnect in neural network models.
