Missing data creates various problems in analysing and processing data in databases. In this paper we introduce a new method aimed at approximating missing data in a database using a combination of genetic algorithms and neural networks. The proposed method uses genetic algorithm to minimise an error function derived from an auto-associative neural network. Multi-layer perceptron (MLP) and radial basis function (RBF) networks are employed to train the neural networks. Our focus also lies on the… CONTINUE READING
