Rethinking multilevel selection in genetic programming

  title={Rethinking multilevel selection in genetic programming},
  author={Shelly Xiaonan Wu and Wolfgang Banzhaf},
This paper aims to improve the capability of genetic programming to tackle the evolution of cooperation: evolving multiple partial solutions that collaboratively solve structurally and functionally complex problems. A multilevel genetic programming approach is presented based on a new computational multilevel selection framework [19]. This approach considers biological group selection theory to encourage cooperation, and a new cooperation operator to build solutions hierarchically. It extends… CONTINUE READING
