Abstract

A new algorithm model-oriented for variable selection is presented in this study. It is based on the combination of genetic algorithms (GA) for hyperspace exploration, and counterpropagation artificial neural network (CP ANN) for deriving the fitness score. The proposed method performed very well on both well defined synthetic data sets and real academic data sets.
