Technical Report Number
This report briefly motivates current research on evolutionary design of neural architectures (EDNA) and presents a short overview of major research issues in this area. It also includes a preliminary taxonomy of research on EDNA and an extensive bibliography of publications on this topic. The taxonomy is an attempt to categorize current research on EDNA in terms of major research issues addressed and approaches pursued. It is our hope that this will help identify open research questions as well as promising directions for further research on EDNA. The report also includes an appendix that provides some suggestions for effective use of the electronic version of the bibliography.
