New Paper: Evolving Deep Neural Networks

Training neural networks is time-consuming and difficult. Generally, it involves multiple PhDs tweaking the network over time, testing and retesting, adjusting the architecture and parameters, and, hopefully, ending up with a network that understands its inputs and makes accurate judgments. And as we ask neural networks to do more and complex tasks, they themselves are…
