Hi guys,
I need a code to find the optimum configuration of a neural network. I mean the number of hidden layers and their corresponding neurons. I found the following topic but there's nothing on the number of hidden layers.
Please, can anyone help me? Thanks in advance.

One hidden layer is always sufficient. However, sometimes
1. Knowledge of the physical or mathematical process may lead to a better understanding using multiple hidden layers
2. Multiple hidden layers can be used to minimze the total number of hidden layer weights that have to be estimated.
Hope this helps.
Thank you for formally accepting my answer
