Abstract

Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) are the state-of-the-art algorithms for the processing of images. However the configuration and training of these networks is a complex task requiring deep domain knowledge, experience and much trial and error. Using genetic algorithms, competitive CNN topologies for image recognition can be produced for any specific purpose, however in previous work this has come at high computational cost. In this work two novel approaches are presented to the utilisation of these algorithms, effective in reducing complexity and training time by nearly 20%. This is accomplished via regularisation directly on training time, and the use of partial training to enable early ranking of individual architectures. Both approaches are validated on the benchmark CIFAR10 data set, and maintain accuracy.
