  • Evolutionary computation methods have been successfully applied to neural networks since two decades ago, while those methods cannot scale well to the modern deep neural networks due to the complicated architectures and large quantities of connection weights. [...] Key Method In the proposed algorithm, an efficient variable-length gene encoding strategy is designed to represent the different building blocks and the unpredictable optimal depth in convolutional neural networks.Expand Abstract
