Controlling a simulated Khepera with an XCS classifier system with memory.

Conference Proceeding
Webb, A., Hart, E., Ross, P. & Lawson, A. (2003)
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...

The Cost of Communication: Environmental Pressure and Survivability in mEDEA

Conference Proceeding
Steyven, A., Hart, E., & Paechter, B. (2015)
The Cost of Communication: Environmental Pressure and Survivability in mEDEA. In Proceedings of the Companion Publication of the 2015 on Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference - GECCO Companion '15, 1239-1240. doi:10.1145/2739482.2768489
We augment the mEDEA algorithm to explicitly account for the costs of communication between robots. Experimental results show that adding a costs for communication exerts envi...

Understanding Environmental Influence in an Open-Ended Evolutionary Algorithm

Conference Proceeding
Steyven, A., Hart, E., & Paechter, B. (2016)
Understanding Environmental Influence in an Open-Ended Evolutionary Algorithm. In Parallel Problem Solving from Nature – PPSN XIV; Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 921-931. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-319-45823-6_86
It is well known that in open-ended evolution, the nature of the environment plays in key role in directing evolution. However, in Evolutionary Robotics, it is often unclear e...

Solving CSPs with evolutionary algorithms using self-adaptive constraint weights.

Conference Proceeding
Eiben, A. E., Jansen, B., Michalewicz, Z., & Paechter, B. (2000)
Solving CSPs with evolutionary algorithms using self-adaptive constraint weights. In D. Whitley (Ed.), GECCO-2000 : proceedings of the genetic and evolutionary computation conference, 128-134
This paper examines evolutionary algorithms (EAs) extended by various penalty-based approaches to solve constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs). In some approaches, the penalt...

Exploiting the analogy between immunology and sparse distributed memory.

Conference Proceeding
Hart, E., & Ross, P. (2001)
Exploiting the analogy between immunology and sparse distributed memory. In J. Timmis, & P. J. Bentley (Eds.), ICARIS 2002 : 1st International Conference on Artificial Immune Systems, 59-67
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...

Idiotypic networks for evolutionary controllers in virtual creatures. In H. Sayama, J. Rieffel, S. Risi, R. Doursat, & H. Lipson (Eds.), Artificial Life 14: Proceedings of ALife, 14th International Conference on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems, (192-199). https://doi.org/10.7551/978-0-262-32621-6-ch032
We propose a novel method for evolving adaptive locomotive strategies for virtual limbless creatures that addresses both functional and non-functional requirements, respective...

An immune system approach to scheduling in changing environments.

Conference Proceeding
Hart, E., & Ross, P. (1998)
An immune system approach to scheduling in changing environments. In W. Banzhaf, J. M. Daida, A. E. Eiben, M. H. Garzon, V. Honavar, M. Jakiela, & R. E. Smith (Eds.), GECCO-99 : proceedings of the genetic and evolutionary computation conference. Volume 2, 1559-1566
This paper describes the application of an artificial immune system, (AIS), model to a scheduling application, in which sudden changes in the scheduling environment require th...
