This paper proposes to incorporate evolutionary multiobjective algorithm and Bayeslan Automatic Relevance Determination (ARD) to automatically design and train ensemble. The algorithm determines almost all the parameters of ensemble automatically. Our algorithm adopts different feature subsets, selected by Bayeslan ARD, to maintain accuracy and promote diversity among Individual NNs in an ensemble. The multiobjective evaluation of the fitness of the networks encourages the networks with lower error rate and fewer features. The proposed algorithm is applied to several realworld classification problems and in all cases the performance of the method is better than the performance of other ensemble construction algorithms. © 2006 IEEE.
