PS-algol is a dialect of algol for the programming of problems that would normally require a database management system. It supports a persistent heap, and an associative store; it has embedded within the language features to support tasks normally carried out by filing systems or database management systems.
This paper investigates the solving of a real world routing problem using evolutionary algorithms embedded within a Multi-agent system (MAS). An architecture for the MAS is proposed and mechanisms for controlling the interactions of agents are investigated. The control mechanism used in the final solution is based on the concept of agents submitting bids to… (More)
Street based routing (SBR) is a real-world inspired routing problem that builds routes within an urban area for mail deliveries. The authors have previously attempted to solve this problem using an Evolutionary Algorithm (EA). In this paper the authors examine a heuristic mutation based on concept of building blocks. In this case a building block is defined… (More)
The game Fox and Geese is solved using retrograde analysis. A neural network trained using a co-evolutionary genetic algorithm with the help of the expert knowledge database was found to be a very capable Fox and Geese player after training, and quickly learned to beat training opponents.
