    Abstract

    A major challenge in cooperative neuro-evolution is to find an efficient problem decomposition that takes into account architectural properties of the neural network and the training problem. In the past, neuron and synapse Level decomposition methods have shown promising results for time series problems, howsoever, the search for the optimal method remains. In this paper, a problem decomposition method, that is based on neuron level decomposition is proposed that features a reverse encoding scheme. It is used for training feedforward networks for time series prediction. The results show that the proposed method has improved performance when compared to related problem decomposition methods and shows competitive results when compared to related methods in the literature.
