> Title: Voronoi Neural Networks
> 
> We introduce a multi-layer perceptron (MLP) which explicitly tessellates the domain with a Voronoi diagram rather than learns the partitions through optimization. The primary advantage of such a network is that is equivalent to b-spine interpolation, where the degree of the b-spline matches that of the activation functions.  Under Lipschitz continuity of the target function, we present various bounds on the global approximation error as a function of the number of hidden units. Numerical experiments are presented to demonstrate the convergence properties.  Finally, some important future directions are discussed, such as the effect of multiple hidden layers on the approximation error.
