Genetic Algorithms have been gaining much interest since the early 1970's and have intrigued people from the fields of machine learning, artificial intelligence, neural networks and operations research. This paper describes the approach of genetic algorithms applied to neural networks. The experiments were conducted using various functions such as XOR,AND,SINE and different network sizes. Based on the experimental data, we concluded that for small network architectures represented by the functions (SINE,ENCODE,etc), genetic algorithms were not effective and the desired results were not achieved within a reasonable period of time.
