Evolving Connectionist Systems

This site is dedicated to Evolving connectionist Systems (ECoS). ECoS are a family of constructive artificial neural network algorithms that were first proposed by Professor Nik Kasabov in 1998 and have since been adopted by many other researchers. This site is my attempt at bringing together links to ECoS-related publications, software (including the ECoS Toolbox) and resources. For an overview of ECoS technology, please see the following paper:

Watts, M.J. A decade of Kasabov’s Evolving Connectionist Systems: A Review. IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics Part C - Applications and Reviews (2009)  39(3) 253-269 (PDF reprint).

There are three major sections to this site: Algorithms, which describes the major ECoS algorithms; Literature, which provides a comprehensive listing of publications relevant to ECoS; and Software, which links to the ECoS software that is available and is home to the ECoS Toolbox.
