About these proceedings


From the contents: Neural networks – theory and applications: NNs (= neural networks) classifier on continuous data domains– quantum associative memory – a new class of neuron-like discrete filters to image processing – modular NNs for improving generalisation properties – presynaptic inhibition modelling for image processing application – NN recognition system for a curvature primal sketch – NN based nonlinear temporal-spatial noise rejection system – relaxation rate for improving Hopfield network – Oja's NN and influence of the learning gain on its dynamics Genetic algorithms – theory and applications: transposition: a biological-inspired mechanism to use with GAs (= genetic algorithms) – GA for decision tree induction – optimising decision classifications using GAs – scheduling tasks with intertask communication onto multiprocessors by GAs – design of robust networks with GA – effect of degenerate coding on GAs – multiple traffic signal control using a GA – evolving musical harmonisation – niched-penalty approach for constraint handling in GAs – GA with dynamic population size – GA with dynamic niche clustering for multimodal function optimisation Soft computing and uncertainty: self-adaptation of evolutionary constructed decision trees by information spreading – evolutionary programming of near optimal NNs
