Evolutionary Computation - Science topic

Evolutionary computation is a subfield computational intelligence that involves combinatorial optimization problems. Evolutionary computation uses iterative progress, such as growth or development in a population. This population is then selected in a guided random search using parallel processing to achieve the desired end. Such processes are often inspired by biological mechanisms of evolution.

Computational time and solution precision are two major concerns in evolutionary computation (EC). Although high-performance computing techniques have been applied to reduce the computational time of meta-heuristic algorithms, it does not mean that they can assist meta-heuristic algorithms in finding a high-quality solution. Moreover, most of meta-...
