Abstract

Training an artificial neural network is an optimization task since it is desired to find optimal weight set of a neural network in training process. Traditional training algorithms has some drawbacks such as getting stuck in local minima and computational complexity. Therefore, evolutionary algorithms are employed to train neural networks to overcome these issues. In this work, Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) Algorithm which has good exploration and exploitation capabilities in searching optimal weight set is used in training neural networks.
