In the learning phase of multilyer feedforword neural network,there are problems such that local minimum,learning praralysis and slow learning speed when backpropagation algorithm used.To overcome these problems, the genetic algorithm has been used as learing method in the multilayer feedforword neural network instead of backpropagation algorithm.However,because the genetic algorith, does not have any mechanism for fine-tuned local search used in backpropagation method,it takes more time that the genetic algorithm converges to a global optimal solution.In this paper,we suggest a new GA-BP method which provides a fine-tunes local search to the genetic algorithm.GA-BP method uses gradient descent method as one of genetic algorithm's operators such as mutation or crossover.To show the effciency of the developed method,we applied it to the 3-parity bit problem with analysis.
