Genetic Algorithms and Neural Networks

  • Larry R. Medsker

Abstract

The integration of genetic algorithms with neural networks is a rapidly expanding area building on the explosion of interest in the two technologies individually. In the early 1990’s, the revolution in the research and application of neural networks was followed by a surge in activity for genetic algorithms. By 1994, several conferences and publications had been dedicated to genetic algorithms where they had formerly been an adjunct of neural network or expert systems forums.

Keywords

Neural Network Genetic Algorithm Hybrid System Evolutionary Computing Conventional Genetic Algorithm 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
