Clustering Moving Data with a Modified Immune Algorithm

Conference Proceeding
Hart, E., & Ross, P. (2001)
Clustering Moving Data with a Modified Immune Algorithm. In E. Boers (Ed.), Applications of Evolutionary Computing, 394-403. https://doi.org/10.1007/3-540-45365-2_41
In this paper we present a prototype of a new model for performing clustering in large, non-static databases. Although many machine learning algorithms for data clustering hav...

This work in progress focuses on the evaluation of a genetic representation for outline shapes for planar mechanical levers which addresses the first stage of the complex real...

An improved immune inspired hyper-heuristic for combinatorial optimisation problems.

Conference Proceeding
Sim, K., & Hart, E. (2014)
An improved immune inspired hyper-heuristic for combinatorial optimisation problems. In C. Igel (Ed.), Proceedings of GECCO 2014 (Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference) (121-128). https://doi.org/10.1145/2576768.2598241
The meta-dynamics of an immune-inspired optimisation sys- tem NELLI are considered. NELLI has previously shown to exhibit good performance when applied to a large set of optim...

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...

Clonal selection from first principles.

Conference Proceeding
McEwan, C., & Hart, E. (2010)
Clonal selection from first principles. In E. Hart, C. McEwan, J. Timmis, & A. Hone (Eds.), Artificial Immune Systems, Proceedings of 9th International Conference, ICARIS 2010, 18-32. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-14547-6_3
Clonal selection is the keystone of mainstream immunology and computational systems based on immunological principles. For the latter, clonal selection is often interpreted as...

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...
