Stone, C., Hart, E., & Paechter, B. (2018)
On the Synthesis of Perturbative Heuristics for Multiple Combinatorial Optimisation Domains. In Parallel Problem Solving from Nature – PPSN XV 15th International Conference, Coimbra, Portugal, September 8–12, 2018, Proceedings, Part Ihttps://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-319-99253-2_14
Hyper-heuristic frameworks, although intended to be cross-domain at the highest level, rely on a set of domain-specific low-level heuristics at lower levels. For some domains,...

On Constructing Ensembles for Combinatorial Optimisation. Evolutionary Computation, 26(1), 67-87. https://doi.org/10.1162/evco_a_00203
Although the use of ensemble methods in machine-learning is ubiquitous due to their proven ability to outperform their constituent algorithms, ensembles of optimisation algori...
A research agenda for metaheuristic standardization.
Presentation / Conference
Hart, E., & Sim, K. (2015, June)
A research agenda for metaheuristic standardization. Paper presented at 11th Metaheuristics International Conference, Agadir, Morocco
We propose that the development of standardized, explicit, machine-readable descriptions of metaheuris- tics will greatly advance scientific progress in the field. In particul...
Exploiting the analogy between the immune system and sparse distributed memory.
Hart, E., & Ross, P. (2002)
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...
