In this paper, the Bees algorithm was used to train multi-layer perceptron neural networks to model the inverse kinematics of an articulated robot manipulator arm. The Bees Algorithm is a recently developed parameter optimisation algorithm that is inspired by the foraging behaviour of honey bees. The Bees Algorithm performs a kind of exploitative(More)
Most methods for the evolutionary generation of multi-layer perceptron classifiers use a divide-and-conquer strategy, where the tasks of feature selection, structure design, and weight training are performed separately. The concurrent evolution of the whole classifier has been seldom attempted and its effectiveness has never been exhaustively benchmarked.(More)
This paper presents an application of the biologically realistic JASTAP neural network model to classification tasks. The JASTAP neural network model is presented as an alternative to the basic multi-layer perceptron model. An evolutionary procedure previously applied to the simultaneous solution of feature selection and neural network training on standard(More)
This paper presents FeaSANNT, an evolutionary procedure for feature selection and weight training for neural network classifiers. FeaSANNT exploits the global nature of evolutionary search to avoid sub-optimal peaks of performance. FeaSANNT was used to train a multi-layer perceptron classifier on seven benchmark problems. FeaSANNT attained accurate and(More)

This paper presents a novel version of the bees algorithm. This version is characterized by an extended set of search operators, and a mechanism that protects the most recently generated solutions from competition with more evolved individuals. Compared to the standard implementation of the bees algorithm, the new procedure requires the selection of an(More)
