Title: Bayesian Learning Of Neural Networks By Means Of Artificial Immune Systems
Author: Castro P.A.D.
Von Zuben F.J.
Abstract: Once the design of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) may require the optimization of numerical and structural parameters, bio-inspired algorithms have been successfully applied to accomplish this task, since they are population-based search strategies capable of dealing successfully with complex and large search spaces, avoiding local minima. In tills paper, we propose the use of an Artificial Immune System for learning feedforward ANN's topologies. Besides the number of neurons in the hidden layer, the algorithm also optimizes the type of activation function for each node. The use of a Bayesian framework to infer the weights and weight decay terms as well as to perform model selection allows us to find neural models with high generalization capability and low complexity, once the Occam's razor principle is incorporated into the framework. We demonstrate the applicability of the proposal on seven classification problems and promising results were obtained. © 2006 IEEE.
