Self-Organizing Migrating Algorithm – Progress, Innovations and Applications

January 16, 2020 @ 15:00 - 16:00

Speaker: Prof. Ivan Zelinka
Location: Sala riunioni DINFO – Via di S. Marta 3
This seminar discusses recent advances, progress and application on SOMA algorithm (http://somaalgorithm.com), that has been developed in the year 2000 and is based on swarm intelligence principles. During its existence it has been published twice in a book form, numerous journals and was a subject of a few keynotes and tutorials. Recent improvements of this algorithms, published on Congress on Evolutionary Algorithms, GECCO and SEMCCO have set up its performance on the same level as the differential evolution is (actually on the 3rd place amongst the 34 state-of-art algorithms of global optimization like PSO, DE, ABC, FireFly,…). In the seminar will be audience introduced to its latest improvements and modification, testing on representative test functions as well as applications of the SOMA. Selected applications will be from domain of chaos control, real-time control of the plasma reactor, symbolic regression – program synthesis, swarm robot control, design of electronic circuits, neural network synthesis, computer games and astrophysical data processing amongst the others. The seminar is designed as an introduction into SOMA, its structure, results, and content are based on our previous research, journal publications, keynotes, and tutorials and reflect the latest progress in that field.
