# Is a neural network an evolutionary algorithm? [closed]

Is a neural network not just an evolutionary algorithm with increased amount of parameters to represent, and optimize a problem in the world?

• Hi. Maybe you should provide more details because, if you're familiar with both neural networks and evolutionary algorithms, I don't understand why you think that neural networks "are just evolutionary algorithms". If you're not familiar with neural networks or EAs, then I don't understand where this question comes from and maybe you should explain it.

A neural network is a model that just connects input features to output predictions, that's it $$y = f(x)$$
