The objective function is the core element in most search algorithms that are used to solve engineering and scientific problems, referred to as the fitness
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7831) Natural evolution is an open-ended search process without an a priori fitness function that needs to be optimized. On the other hand, evolutionary algorithms (EAs) rely on a clear and quantitative objective.
We describe the use of Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) for the ball and beam control problem, in particular for the problem of tuning a fuzzy controller of the Sugeno type. In our case study the...
The canonical approach towards fitness evaluation in Genetic Programming (GP) is to use a static training set to determine fitness, based on a cost function averaged over all fitness-cases. However,...
Leonardo Trujillo Enrique Naredo Yuliana Martínez Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 227) Bloat is one of the most interesting theoretical problems in genetic programming (GP), and one of the most important pragmatic limitations in the development of real-world GP solutions.
Recent research on evolutionary algorithms has begun to focus on the issue of generalization. While most works emphasize the evolution of high quality solutions for particular problem instances,...
The Operator Equalization (OE) family of bloat control methods have achieved promising results in many domains. In particular, the Flat-OE method, that promotes a flat distribution of program sizes,...
Uriel López Leonardo Trujillo Yuliana Martinez Pierrick Legrand Enrique Naredo Sara Silva Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10196) Genetic programming (GP) has been shown to be a powerful tool for automatic modeling and program induction. It is often used to solve difficult symbolic regression tasks, with many examples in real-world domains.
EVOLVE - A Bridge between Probability, Set Oriented Numerics, and Evolutionary Computation II | SpringerLink
This book comprises a selection of papers from the EVOLVE 2012 held in Mexico City, Mexico. The aim of the EVOLVE is to build a bridge between probability, set oriented numerics and evolutionary compu
Over recent years, evolutionary computation research has begun to emphasize the issue of generalization. Instead of evolving solutions that are optimized for a particular problem instance, the goal...
A topology synthesis method is introduced using genetic algorithms (GA) based on novelty search (NS). NS is an emerging meta-heuristic, that guides the search based on the novelty of each solution instead of the objective function. The synthesized topologies are current follower (CF) circuits; these topologies are new and designed using integrated circuit CMOS technology of 0.35 μ xm.
Novelty Search (NS) is a unique approach towards search and optimization, where an explicit objective function is replaced by a measure of solution no...
BP) for automating the design of Hyperspectral Visual Attention Models (H-VAM.), which is proposed as a new method for the detection of buried remains. Four graves were simulated and monitored during six months by taking in situ spectral measurements of the ground.
Novelty Search (NS) is a unique approach towards search and optimization, where an explicit objective function is replaced by a measure of solution novelty. However, NS has been mostly used in evolutionary robotics, its usefulness in classic machine learning problems has been unexplored.
Stereo vision is one of the most active research areas in modern computer vision. The objective is to recover 3-D depth information from a pair of 2-D images that capture the same scene. This paper...
