ANN MOGA - XL
ANN MOGA (ANNs by Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithm) is a tool developed on the homonymous modelling methodology based on the ANNs paradigm [Giustolisi and Simeone (2006)]. The tool employs a particular structure of ANN named the Input-Output Neural Network (IONN). In particular, it is based on a MOGA approach for construction of IONN models, which prevents potential overfitting troubles caused by poor generalization capabilities of the identified ANNs [Giustolisi and Laucelli (2005)]. This can be obtained by minimizing the model’s input dimension and the number of hidden neurons (flexibility) while preserving fitness properties.
EPR MOGA - XL
The Evolutionary Polynomial Regression (EPR) [Giustolisi and Savic (2006)] has been introduced in the hydroinformatics community as a hybrid data-driven technique, which combines the effectiveness of genetic algorithms with numerical regression for developing simple and easily interpretable mathematical model expressions. The multi-objective search paradigm has been introduced [Giustolisi and Savic (2009)] for developing multiple models by simultaneously optimizing fitness to training data and parsimony of resulting mathematical expressions.Such improvement allows for a sudden understanding of existing patterns in data
