This paper presents an application of swarm intelligence technique namely Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) to design the design of the Beta Basis Function Neural Networks (BBFNN). The focus of this research is to investigate the new population metaheuristic to optimize the Beta neural networks parameters. The proposed algorithm is used for the prediction of benchmark problems. Simulation examples are also given to compare the effectiveness of the model with the other known methods in the literature. Empirical results reveal that the proposed ABC-BBFNN have impressive generalization ability.
