  • Evolutionary computation (EC) is a kind of optimization methodology inspired by the mechanisms of biological evolution and behaviors of living organisms. In the literature, the terminology evolutionary algorithms is frequently treated the same as EC. This article focuses on making a survey of researches based on using ML techniques to enhance EC algorithms. In the framework of an ML-technique enhanced-EC algorithm (MLEC), the main idea is that the EC algorithm has stored ample data about the… CONTINUE READING
