Collective Decision-Making by Bee Colonies as Model for Optimization - the OptBees Algorithm


This paper presents OptBees, a new bee-inspired algorithm for solving continuous optimization problems. Two key mechanisms for OptBees are introduced: 1) a local search step; and 2) a process of dynamic variation of the number of active bees that helps the algorithm to regulate the computational effort spent in the search and to achieve improved results… (More)
