  abstract =     "Modern applications of Artificial Neural Networks
                 (ANNs)largely feature networks organized into layers of
                 nodes. Each layer contains an arbitrary number of
                 nodes, and these nodes only share edges with nodes in
                 certain other layers, as determined by the network's
                 topology. Topologies of ANNs are frequently designed by
                 human intuition, due to the lack of a versatile method
                 of determining the best topology for any given problem.
                 Previous attempts at creating a system to automate the
                 discovery of network topologies have used evolutionary
                 computing [6]. The evolution in these systems built
                 networks on a node-by-node basis, limiting the
                 probability of larger, layered topologies. This paper
                 provides on overview of Growth from Embryo of Layered
                 Neural Networks (GELNN), which attempts to evolve
                 topologies of neural networks in terms of layers, and
                 inter-layer connections, instead of individual nodes
                 and edges.",
