Paper Abstract

This paper proposes an evolutionary based method to design the feedforward Artificial Neural Networks (ANN). The Evolutionary Programming method evolves concurrently the topology and weight distribution of ANN, accelerates the rate of convergence of the solution obtained, and approaches the global optimal solution, then BP is used to train the exact weight values. The experiments demonstrate the method is promising.
