  abstract =     "In this paper we prove that for a variety of practical
                 situations, the no-free-lunch (NFL) theorem does not
                 apply to algorithms that search the space of artificial
                 neural networks, such as evolutionary algorithms. We
                 find, in particular, that, while conditions under which
                 NFL applies exist, these require extremely restrictive
                 symmetries on the set of possible problems which are
                 unlikely encountered in practice. In other words, not
                 all algorithms are equally good at finding neural
                 networks that solve problems under all possible
                 performance measures: a superior search algorithm for
                 this domain does exist.",
