Nearest neighbor partitioning (NNP) method has been proved to be an effective method to enhance the quality of neural network classifiers. However, there are many cluster shapes in NNP, which results in a large number of local optimal solutions in the searching space by the traditional particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm. Therefore, the multi-layer particle swarm optimization (MLPSO) is introduced to increase the diversity of searching groups through increasing the number of layers, thereby improving the performance when facing with large scale problems. In this study, we adopt the combination of multi-layer particle swarm optimization and nearest neighbor partitioning to solve the local optimal problem caused by multi-cluster shapes in the optimization of NNP. Experimental results show that this method improves the performance of classifier.
