Abstract

A method is proposed which searches for optimal structures of Neural Networks (NN) using Genetic Algorithm (GA). The purpose of the method lies in not only finding an optimal NN structure but also leading us to the goal of self-organized control system that acquires its structure and its functionality by itself depending on its environment.
