Evolutionary Design of Neural Network Architectures Using a Descriptive Encoding Language

  title={Evolutionary Design of Neural Network Architectures Using a Descriptive Encoding Language},
  author={Jae-Yoon Jung and James A. Reggia},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation},
Evolutionary algorithms are a promising approach to the automated design of artificial neural networks, but they require a compact and efficient genetic encoding scheme to represent repetitive and recurrent modules in networks. We present a problem-independent approach based on a human-readable and writable descriptive encoding using a high-level language. This encoding is based on developmental methods and a modular neural network paradigm. Here, we show that our approach works effectively by… CONTINUE READING
