This paper is concerned with the optimization method of the cascade architectures of fuzzy neural networks. The structure of the network that deals with a selection of a subset of input variables and their distribution across the individual logic processors (LPs) is optimized with the use of genetic algorithms (GA). We discuss random signal-based learning employing simulated annealing (SARSL), a local search technique, aimed at further refinement of the connections of the neurons (GA-SARSL). A standard data set is discussed with respect to the performance of the constructed networks and their interpretability.
