Benchmarking an artificial neural network tuned by a genetic algorithm

Abstract [en]

This thesis starts with a brief introduction to neural networks and the tuning of neural networks using genetic algorithms. An improved genetic algorithm is benchmarked using the technical paper Proben1 as a starting point. The benefits of using a genetic algorithm as well as results of the benchmark tests in comparison to a resilient backpropagation algorithm are discussed. The improved genetic algorithm is not a universal solution to all classification problems. Even though it outperforms  the resilient backpropagation algorithm slightly in these benchmark tests more benchmarking on more vast solution domains must be performed.
