"NP-hard" is used for Problems not for Algorithms. The literature review shows that BFOA is applied to solve NP-hard problems like job-shop(see  for example). But, "The algorithm is structurally complex due to its nested loop architecture and includes several parameters whose selection deeply influences the result."

Well it belongs to natural computing/swarm-based computation, it's not an EA in the strict sense of the term although it is not that different

Hi, I want to use feature selection and feature extraction method both before classification. Do I apply feature selection first and then feature extraction or reverse? Please let me help.
Could any one tell me whether ordinal attribute can be given as an input to SVM and MLP?
- Vishnu Priya
Can MLP and SVM handle ordinal features straightly or any preprocessing needed in order to perform classification?
Whether the term 'Monotonic transformation' is related here ? If so, how it is related?
I read somewhere saying both the classifiers are sensitive to monotonic transformations. Any paper references also appreciated.
Does anyone know the species of toads that inhabit Mauritius?
- Deleted profile
I currently have an African common toad (Amietophrynus gutturalis) which has made its way to the uk via baggage transfer. I am writing a short report regarding this species with a colleague and know this specimen originated from Mauritius. Can anyone advise of the other species of toads currently present in Mauritius please? I am already aware of Amietophrynus gutturalis and Rhinella marina. Any additional info would be greatly appreciated, thankyou.

Which of these: Quantum Particle Swarm Optimization or Bacterial Foraging Optimization is better? Also compare on application to non-rigid images?
- Yashwanth Vyza
PSO is can be used for both vel. and position determination in optimization of multi-modal images. But quantum-PSO is capable only for determination of position itself, so how to extend it?
Next which of Q-PSO or BF optimization is better for application to non-rigid multi-modal images?

- Ting He
I'm on the study of the weather condition classfication for the Beijing administrative region. From the knowledge in the references the research area are usually at regional scale (above hundreds km2). I want to know that is it possible for classifying the weather conditions at the city scale? If it is possible, which kind of data will be used?

This study proposes two modified frameworks of Bacterial Foraging Optimization Algorithm (BFOA) for data classification. The aim is to optimize and improve the k-nearest neighbor classifier performance by manipulating the global search capability of BFOA. To the best of our knowledge, no work has been done to fully utilize BFOA as a single classifi...
This paper proposes a new object classification method based on an improved bacterial foraging optimisation algorithm. Firstly, a dynamic step size is used instead of the fixed step size of the chemotaxis. Secondly, the fixed elimination-dispersal probability is replaced by the dynamic probability. Features are extracted to distinguish the objects,...
