method are discussed. Finally, a case study demonstrating the application and effectiveness of this method is presented.
Neurocontroller minimization is beneficial for constructing small parsimonious networks that permit a better understanding of their workings. This paper presents a novel, Evolutionary Network Minimization (ENM) algorithm which is applied to fully recurrent neurocon-trollers. ENM is a simple, standard genetic algorithm with an additional step in which small… (More)
This study presents a new evolutionary network minimization (ENM) algorithm. Neurocontroller minimization is beneficial for finding small parsimonious networks that permit a better understanding of their workings. The ENM algorithm is specifically geared to an evolutionary agents setup, as it does not require any explicit supervised training error, and is… (More)
