This study points out some weaknesses of existing quantum-inspired evolutionary algorithms (QEA) and explains in particular how hitchhiking phenomena can slow down the discovery of optimal solutions and encourage premature convergence. A new algorithm, called versatile quantum- inspired evolutionary algorithm (vQEA), is proposed. With vQEA, the attractors moving the population through the search space are replaced at every generation without considering their fitness. The new algorithm is much… CONTINUE READING
