The Effect of Multi-Generational Selection in Geometric Semantic Genetic Programming

5 May 2022  ·  Mauro Castelli, Luca Manzoni, Luca Mariot, Giuliamaria Menara, Gloria Pietropolli ·

Among the evolutionary methods, one that is quite prominent is Genetic Programming, and, in recent years, a variant called Geometric Semantic Genetic Programming (GSGP) has shown to be successfully applicable to many real-world problems. Due to a peculiarity in its implementation, GSGP needs to store all the evolutionary history, i.e., all populations from the first one. We exploit this stored information to define a multi-generational selection scheme that is able to use individuals from older populations. We show that a limited ability to use "old" generations is actually useful for the search process, thus showing a zero-cost way of improving the performances of GSGP.
