In this study, a new algorithm of multi-layered neural network using heuristic self-organization is proposed. We call this algorithm as Group Method of Data Handling(GMDH)-type neural network algorithm self-selecting optimum neural network architecture. The GMDH-type neural network algorithm has an ability of self-selecting optimum neural network architecture from three neural network architectures such as sigmoid function neural network, radial basis function (RBF) neural network and polynomial neural network. The GMDH-type neural network also has abilities of self-selecting the number of layers, the number of neurons in hidden layers and useful input variables.
