The possibility of using artificial radial basis function neural networks for modeling of economic
phenomena and processes is shown. The basic characteristics and parameters of an artificial
radial basis function neural network are shown and the advantages of using this type of artificial
neural networks for modeling economic phenomena and processes are emphasized. Using an artificial
radial basis function neural network, together with official statistics for 2010-2017, the modeling of the
influence caused by work efficiency indicators of the customs authorities of Ukraine on the indicators
of economic security of Ukraine was carried out. The results obtained showed good analytical and
prognostic properties of an artificial radial basis function neural network when modeling the impact of
customs authorities’ performance on the state’s economic security indicators.

Key words

Economic security of the state, Radial Basis Function Neural Networks, Customs system,
Indicators of economic security of the state, Macroeconomic forecasting.
