Multi-objective genetic algorithms have been often used to optimize classification systems, but little is discussed on their computational cost to solve such problems. This paper optimizes a classification system with an annealing based approach, the Record-to-Record Travel algorithm. Results obtained are compared to those obtained with a multi-objective genetic algorithm in the same approach. Experiments are performed with isolated handwritten digits and uppercase letters, demonstrating both… CONTINUE READING
