This paper presents an input-dependent neural network (IDNN) with variable parameters. The parameters of the neurons in the hidden nodes adapt to changes of the input environment, so that different test input sets separately distributed in a large domain can be tackled after training. Effectively, there are different individual neural networks for different sets of inputs. The proposed network exhibits a better learning and generalization ability than the traditional one. An improved real-coded genetic algorithm (RCGA) Ling and Leung (Soft Comput 11(1):7-31, 2007) is proposed to train the network parameters. Industrial applications on short-term load forecasting and hand-written graffiti recognition will be presented to verify and illustrate the improvement. © Springer-Verlag 2007.
