An investigation of environmental influence on the benefits of adaptation mechanisms in evolutionary swarm robotics

Conference Proceeding
Steyven, A., Hart, E., & Paechter, B. (2017)
An investigation of environmental influence on the benefits of adaptation mechanisms in evolutionary swarm robotics. In GECCO '17 Proceedings of the Genetic and Evolutionary, (155-162). https://doi.org/10.1145/3071178.3071232
A robotic swarm that is required to operate for long periods in a potentially unknown environment can use both evolution and individual learning methods in order to adapt. How...

Hybridisation of Evolutionary Algorithms through hyper-heuristics for global continuous optimisation

Conference Proceeding
Segredo, E., Lalla-Ruiz, E., Hart, E., Paechter, B., & Voß, S. (2016)
Hybridisation of Evolutionary Algorithms through hyper-heuristics for global continuous optimisation. In P. Festa, M. Sellmann, & J. Vanschoren (Eds.), Learning and Intelligent Optimization: 10th International Conference, LION 10, Ischia, Italy, May 29 -- June 1, 2016, (296-305). https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-319-50349-3_25
Choosing the correct algorithm to solve a problem still remains an issue 40 years after the Algorithm Selection Problem was first posed. Here we propose a hyper-heuristic whic...
