Multifactorial Evolution: Toward Evolutionary Multitasking

  title={Multifactorial Evolution: Toward Evolutionary Multitasking},
  author={Abhishek Gupta and Yew-Soon Ong and Liang Feng},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation},
The design of evolutionary algorithms has typically been focused on efficiently solving a single optimization problem at a time. Despite the implicit parallelism of population-based search, no attempt has yet been made to multitask, i.e., to solve multiple optimization problems simultaneously using a single population of evolving individuals. Accordingly, this paper introduces evolutionary multitasking as a new paradigm in the field of optimization and evolutionary computation. We first… CONTINUE READING
