Revolutionary Algorithms

19 Jan 2014  ·  Ronald Hochreiter, Christoph Waldhauser ·

The optimization of dynamic problems is both widespread and difficult. When conducting dynamic optimization, a balance between reinitialization and computational expense has to be found... There are multiple approaches to this. In parallel genetic algorithms, multiple sub-populations concurrently try to optimize a potentially dynamic problem. But as the number of sub-population increases, their efficiency decreases. Cultural algorithms provide a framework that has the potential to make optimizations more efficient. But they adapt slowly to changing environments. We thus suggest a confluence of these approaches: revolutionary algorithms. These algorithms seek to extend the evolutionary and cultural aspects of the former to approaches with a notion of the political. By modeling how belief systems are changed by means of revolution, these algorithms provide a framework to model and optimize dynamic problems in an efficient fashion. read more
