The authors describe experiments using a genetic algorithm for feature selection in the context of neural network classifiers, specifically, counterpropagation networks. They present the novel techniques used in the application of genetic algorithms. First, the genetic algorithm is configured to use an approximate evaluation in order to reduce significantly the computation required. In particular, though the desired classifiers are counterpropagation networks, they use a nearest-neighbor… CONTINUE READING
