The wide availability of sensing devices in the medical domain causes the creation of large and very large data sets. Hence, tasks as the classification in such data sets becomes more and more difficult. Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) are very effective in classification, yet finding the best values for their hyper-parameters is a difficult and time-consuming task. This paper introduces an approach to decrease execution times to automatically find good hyper-parameter values for DNN through Evolutionary Algorithms when classification task is faced. This decrease is obtained through the combination of two mechanisms. The former is constituted by a distributed version for a Differential Evolution algorithm. The latter is based on a procedure aimed at reducing the size of the training set and relying on a decomposition into cubes of the space of the data set attributes. Experiments are carried out on a medical data set about Obstructive Sleep Anpnea. They show that sub-optimal DNN hyper-parameter values are obtained in a much lower time with respect to the case where this reduction is not effected, and that this does not come to the detriment of the accuracy in the classification over the test set items.
