Incremental social learning (ISL) was proposed as a way to improve the scalability of systems composed of multiple learning agents. In this paper, we show that ISL can be very useful to improve the performance of population-based optimization algorithms. Our study focuses on two particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithms: a) the incremental particle swarm(More)
We present an algorithm that is inspired by theoretical and empirical results in social learning and swarm intelligence research. The algorithm is based on a framework that we call incremental social learning. In practical terms, the algorithm is a hybrid between a local search procedure and a particle swarm optimization algorithm with growing population(More)
