This paper proposes a novel method for optimizing features and parameters in the Evolving Spiking Neural Network (ESNN) using Quantum-inspired Particle Swarm Optimization (QiPSO). This study reveals the interesting concept of QiPSO in which information is represented as binary structures. The mechanism simultaneously optimizes the ESNN parameters and relevant features using wrapper approach. A synthetic dataset is used to evaluate the performance of the proposed method. The results show that QiPSO yields promising outcomes in obtaining the best combination of ESNN parameters as well as in identifying the most relevant features.
