Improving Evolutionary Strategies with Generative Neural Networks

Evolutionary Strategies (ES) are a popular family of black-box zeroth-order optimization algorithms which rely on search distributions to efficiently optimize a large variety of objective functions. This paper investigates the potential benefits of using highly flexible search distributions in classical ES algorithms, in contrast to standard ones (typically Gaussians)... (read more)
