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...

GAVEL - a new tool for genetic algorithm visualization

Journal Article
Ross, P., Hart, E., & Ross, P. (2000)
GAVEL - a new tool for genetic algorithm visualization. IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, 5(4), 335-348. doi:10.1109/4235.942528
Abstract—This paper surveys the state of the art in evolutionary algorithm visualization and describes a new tool called GAVEL. It provides a means to examine in a generationa...

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...

Scheduling chicken catching - an investigation into the success of a genetic algorithm on a real world scheduling problem.

Journal Article
Hart, E., Ross, P., & Nelson, J. (1999)
