Abstract

Creating a neural network based classification model is commonly accomplished using the trial and error technique. However, this technique has several difficulties in terms of time wasted and the availability of experts. In this article, an algorithm that simplifies structuring neural network classification models is proposed. The algorithm aims at creating a large enough structure to learn models from the training dataset that can be generalised on the testing dataset. Our algorithm dynamically tunes the structure parameters during the training phase aiming to derive accurate non-overfitting classifiers. The proposed algorithm has been applied to phishing website classification problem and it shows competitive results with respect to various evaluation measures such as harmonic mean (F1-score), precision, and classification accuracy.
