Summary Selection of the topology of a neural network and correct parameters for the learning algorithm is a tedious task for designing an optimal artificial neural network, which is smaller, faster and with a better generalization performance. In this paper we introduce a recently developed cutting angle method (a deterministic technique) for global optimization of connection weights. Neural networks are initially trained using the cutting angle method and later the learning is fine-tuned (meta-learning) using conventional gradient descent or other optimization techniques. Experiments were carried out on three time series benchmarks and a comparison was done using evolutionary neural networks. Our preliminary experimentation results show that the proposed deterministic approach could provide near optimal results much faster than the evolutionary approach.
