Title: Evolutionary Algorithms for Optimization of Complex Systems
Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) are generic population-based metaheuristic optimization algorithms originated from Genetic Algorithm proposed John Holland. EAs include Genetic Algorithm (GA), Genetic Programming (GP), Evolutionary Programming (EP), Evolution Strategy (ES), and Neuroevolution (NE). EAs have extremely wide applications, including engineering, natural science and social science. This talk will give a brief introduction to EA with focus on some GA operators and ES approaches. The speaker also will share some observations and general rules from GA and ES studies that might be useful for the study of complex systems.
