A Lifelong Learning Hyper-heuristic Method for Bin Packing.
Hart, E., Sim, K., & Paechter, B. (2015)
A Lifelong Learning Hyper-heuristic Method for Bin Packing. Evolutionary Computation, 23(1), 37-67. https://doi.org/10.1162/EVCO_a_00121
We describe a novel Hyper-heuristic system which continuously learns over time to solve a combinatorial optimisation problem. The system continuously generates new heuristics ...
