This work investigates the application of a stochastic search technique, evolutionary programming, for developing self-organizing neural networks. The chosen stochastic search method is capable of simultaneously evolving both network architecture and weights. The number of synapses and neurons are incorporated into an objective function so that network parameter optimization is done with respect to computational costs as well as mean pattern error. Experiments are conducted using feedforward networks for simple binary mapping problems.
