EvAg: a scalable peer-to-peer evolutionary algorithm
TLDR
This paper studies the scalability of an Evolutionary Algorithm (EA) whose population is structured by means of a gossiping protocol and where the evolutionary operators act exclusively within the local neighborhoods. Expand

KohonAnts - A Self-Organizing Ant Algorithm for Clustering and Pattern Classification
TLDR
In this paper we introduce a new ant-based method that takes advantage of the cooperative self-organization of Ant Colony Systems to create a naturally inspired clustering and pattern recognition method. Expand

Browser-based distributed evolutionary computation: performance and scaling behavior
TLDR
The challenge of ad-hoc computing is to find the way of taking advantage of spare cycles in an efficient way that takes into account all capabilities of the devices and connections available to them. Expand

Evolving Bot AI in UnrealTM
TLDR
This paper describes the design, implementation and results of an evolutionary bot inside the PC game UnrealTM, that is, an autonomous enemy which tries to beat the human player and/or some other bots. Expand
