Abstract: The neural network (NN) performance improvement is one of the major topics. Thus an adaptive genetic algorithm (AGA) technique is proposed by making adaptive with respect to genetic operators like crossover and mutation. Our adaptive GA technique starts with the generation of initial population as same as the normal GA and performs the fitness calculation for each individual generated chromosome. After that, the genetic operator's crossover and mutation will be performed on the best chromosomes. The AGA technique will be utilised in the NN performance improvement process. The AGA will utilise some parameters obtained from the NN by back propagation algorithm. The utilisation of NN parameters by AGA will improve the NN performance. Hence, the NN performance can be improved more effectively by achieving high performance ratio than the conventional GA with NN. The technique will be implemented in the working platform of MATLAB and the results will be analysed to demonstrate the performance of the proposed AGA.
