Hyperparameter optimization is a very difficult problem in developing deep learning algorithms. In this paper, a genetic algorithm was applied to solve this problem. The accuracy and the verification time were considered by conducting a fitness evaluation. The algorithm was evaluated by using a simple model that has a single convolution layer and a single fully connected layer. A model with three layers was used. The MNIST dataset and a motor fault diagnosis dataset were used to train the algorithm. The results show that the method is useful for reducing the training time.
