Simulated Annealing, a wide-spread technique for combinatorial optimisation, is employed to find the optimal candidate in a candidate set, as defined in Optimality Theory (OT). Being a heuristic technique, simulated annealing does not guarantee to return the correct solution, and yet, some result is always returned within a constant time. Similarly to language production, this time framework can be diminished with the cost of diminishing correctness. We demonstrate how simulated annealing can… CONTINUE READING
