Radial basis function (RBF) artificial neural network (ANN) and response surface methodology (RSM) were used to build a predictive model of the combined effects of independent variables (pH, temperature, inoculum volume) for extracellular protease production from a newly isolated Pseudomonas sp. The optimum operating conditions obtained from the quadratic form of the RSM and ANN models were pH 7.6, temperature 38 degreeC, and inoculum volume of 1.5 with 58.5 U/ml of predicted protease activity within 24 h of incubation. The normalized percentage mean squared error obtained from ANN and RSM models were 0.05 and 0.1%, respectively. The results demonstrated an higher prediction accuracy of ANN compared to RSM. This superiority of ANN over other multi factorial approaches could make this estimation technique a very helpful tool for fermentation monitoring and control.
