A major limitation in applying evolution strategies to black box optimization is the possibility of convergence into bad local optima. Many techniques address this problem, mostly through restarting the search. However, deciding the new start location is nontrivial since neither a good location nor a good scale for sampling a random restart position are known. A black box search algorithm can nonetheless obtain some information about this location and scale from past exploration. The method… CONTINUE READING
