We present a machine-learning photometric redshift analysis of the Kilo-Degree Survey Data Release 3, using two neural-network based techniques: ANNz2 and MLPQNA. Despite limited coverage of spectroscopic training sets, these ML codes provide photo-zs of quality comparable to, if not better than, those from the BPZ code, at least up to z(phot) less than or similar to 0.9 and r less than or similar to 23.5. At the bright end of r less than or similar to 20, where very complete spectroscopic data...[Show more]
