Prof. Dr. Yong Zeng: Can a software system automatically evolve its algorithms?Abstract
This talk aims to discuss an algorithm development strategy based on which the algorithm performance can evolve by itself. The strategy includes three parts:
- design the algorithm structure using EBD (Environment-Based Design) methodology, whose transition rules need to be defined to fit into various problems that are targeted by the algorithm;
- solve the targeted problems by implementing the transition rules using trial-and-error methods; and
- replace the transition rules by an ANN trained by the successful examples from 2).
