This paper presents a new model for neuro-evolutionary systems. It is a new quantum-inspired evolutionary algorithm with binary-real representation (QIEA-BR) for evolution of a neural network. The proposed model is an extension of the QIEA-R developed for numerical optimization. The Quantum-Inspired Neuro-Evolutionary Computation model (QINEA-BR) is able to completely configure a feed-forward neural network in terms of selecting the relevant input variables, number of neurons in the hidden layer and all existent synaptic weights. QINEA-BR is evaluated in a benchmark problem of financial credit evaluation. The results obtained demonstrate the effectiveness of this new model in comparison with other machine learning and statistical models, providing good accuracy in separating good from bad customers.
