Construction of deep neutral networks using swarm intelligence to detect anomalies


The design of neural network architecture is becoming more difficult as the complexity of the problems we tackle using machine learning increases. Many variables influence the performance of a neural model, and those variables are often limited by the researcher’s prior knowledge and experience. In our master’s thesis, we will focus on becoming familiar with evolutionary neural network design, anomaly detection techniques, and a deeper knowledge of autoencoders and their potential for application in unsupervised learning. Our practical objective will be to build a neural architecture search based on swarm intelligence, and construct an autoencoder architecture for anomaly detection in the MNIST dataset.
