Evolving Deep Convolutional Neural Networks for Image Classification

30 Oct 2017Yanan SunBing XueMengjie ZhangGary G. Yen

Evolutionary computation methods have been successfully applied to neural networks since two decades ago, while those methods cannot scale well to the modern deep neural networks due to the complicated architectures and large quantities of connection weights. In this paper, we propose a new method using genetic algorithms for evolving the architectures and connection weight initialization values of a deep convolutional neural network to address image classification problems...
