This paper examines evolutionary nonlinear projection (NLP), a form of multidimensional scaling (MDS) performed with an evolutionary algorithm. MDS is a family of techniques for producing a low dimensional data set whose points have a one-to-one correspondence with the points of a higher dimensional data set with the added property that distances or dissimilarities in the higher dimensional space are preserved as much as possible in the lower dimensional space. The goal is typically… CONTINUE READING
