Early and seminal work which applied evolutionary computing methods to scheduling problems from 1985 onwards laid a strong and exciting foundation for the work which has been ...

The impact of the shape of antibody recognition regions on the emergence of idiotypic networks.

Journal Article
Hart, E. & Ross, P. (2005)
The impact of the shape of antibody recognition regions on the emergence of idiotypic networks. International Journal of Unconventional Computing. 1, 281-313. ISSN 1548-7199
One of the components of an AIS algorithm that most distinguishes it from other paradigms is the use of an affinity funciton. However, for the most part, the implications of c...

Much of current robot research is about learning tasks in which the task to be achieved is pre-specified, a suitable technology for the task is chosen and the learning process...

Genetic algorithms and timetabling.

Book Chapter
Ross, P., Hart, E., & Corne, D. (2003)
Genetic algorithms and timetabling. In A. Ghosh, & K. Tsutsui (Eds.), Advances in Evolutionary OptimisationBMC. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-18965-4_30
Genetic algorithms can be used to search very large spaces, and it would seem natural to use them for tackling the nastier kinds of timetabling problem. We completed an EPSRC-...

Exploiting the analogy between the immune system and sparse distributed memory.

Journal Article
Hart, E., & Ross, P. (2002)
Exploiting the analogy between the immune system and sparse distributed memory. Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines, 4(4), 333-358. doi:10.1023/a:1026191011609
The relationship between immunological memory and a class of associative memories known as sparse distributed memories (SDM) is well known. This paper proposes a new model for...

Controlling a simulated Khepera with an XCS classifier system with memory. ISBN 9783540200574
Autonomous agents commonly suffer from perceptual aliasing in which differing situations are perceived as identical by the robots sensors, yet require different courses of act...

Learning a procedure that can solve hard bin-packing problems: a new GA-based approach to hyperheuristics.

Conference Proceeding
Ross, P., Marin-Blazquez, J. G., Schulenburg, S. & Hart, E. (2003)
Learning a procedure that can solve hard bin-packing problems: a new GA-based approach to hyperheuristics
The idea underlying hyper-heuristics is to discover some combination of familiar, straightforward heuristics that performs very well across a whole range of problems. To be wo...
