RNeat Square Root Neural Net Trained Using Augmenting Topologies [Gekko Quant]A simple tutorial demonstrating how to train a neural network to square root numbers using a genetic algorithm that searches through the topological structure space. The algorithm is called NEAT (Neuro Evolution of Augmenting Topologies) available in the RNeat package (not yet on CRAN). The training is very similar to other machine learning / regression packages in R. The training function takes a
