Until recently, the potential to transfer evolved skills across distinct optimization problem instances (or tasks) was seldom explored in evolutionary computation. The concept of evolutionary multitasking (EMT) fills this gap. It unlocks a population’s implicit parallelism to jointly solve a set of tasks, hence creating avenues for skills transfer between them. Despite it being early days, the idea of EMT has begun to show promise in a range of real-world applications. In the backdrop of recent… Expand

TLDR
To assess the generality and effectiveness of the EMHH, population-based graph-based hyper-heuristics integrated with evolutionary multitasking to solve exam timetabling and graph-coloring problems, separately and simultaneously, are studied. Expand
A biological perspective on evolutionary computation
TLDR
This Perspective highlights where major differences still exist, and where the field of evolutionary computation could attempt to approach features from biological evolution more closely, namely neutrality and random drift, complex genotype-to-phenotype mappings with rich environmental interactions and major organizational transitions.

Cognizant Multitasking in Multiobjective Multifactorial Evolution: MO-MFEA-II
TLDR
This article presents a realization of a cognizant evolutionary multitasking engine within the domain of multiobjective optimization that learns intertask relationships based on overlaps in the probabilistic search distributions derived from data generated during the course of multitasking—and accordingly adapts the extent of genetic transfers online.

  • 2021
TLDR
The paper considers wrapper-based feature selection as an illustrative case study of the broader idea of using multitasking to speedup outer-loop evolutionary configurations of any machine learning subsystem, and reveals that multitasking can indeed speedup baseline EAs, by more than 40% on some datasets.
