Evolutionary Systems


Has AI changed the SEO industry for better or worse?

#artificialintelligence

With Google turning to artificial intelligence to power its flagship search engine business, has the SEO industry been left in the dust? The old ways of testing and measuring are becoming antiquated, and industry insiders are scrambling to understand something new -- something which is more advanced than their backgrounds typically permit. The fact is, even Google engineers are having a hard time explaining how Google works anymore. With this in mind, is artificial intelligence changing the SEO industry for better or worse? And has Google's once-understood algorithm become a "runaway algorithm?"


Cooperative Group Optimization System

#artificialintelligence

The cooperative group optimization (CGO) system consists of a group of intelligent agents cooperating with their peers in a sharing environment for realizing a common intention of finding high-quality solution(s) based on the landscape representation of an optimization task. CGO has also been applied on numerical optimization problem (NOP) to find solutions in high-dimensional nonlinear continuous space. Some algorithms, including Dissipative Particle Swarm Optimization (DPSO), Differential Evolution (DE), Social Cognitive Optimization (SCO), Genetic Algorithms (GA), and Electromagnetism-like Mechanism (EM) Heuristic, etc, and their hybrids (e.g., DEPSO), could be easily implemented into CGO. Both SCO and DEPSO have been incorporated into the NLPSolver extension of Calc in Apache Office. DEPSO was used for finding narrow admissible k-tuples.


A Visual Guide to Evolution Strategies

@machinelearnbot

In this post I explain how evolution strategies (ES) work with the aid of a few visual examples. I try to keep the equations light, and I provide links to original articles if the reader wishes to understand more details. This is the first post in a series of articles, where I plan to show how to apply these algorithms to a range of tasks from MNIST, OpanAI Gym, Roboschool to PyBullet environments. Neural network models are highly expressive and flexible, and if we are able to find a suitable set of model parameters, we can use neural nets to solve many challenging problems. Deep learning's success largely comes from the ability to use the backpropagation algorithm to efficiently calculate the gradient of an objective function over each model parameter.


Design by Evolution: How to evolve your neural network with AutoML

But as the available processing power increases, it makes sense to begin automating this network optimisation process. Typically, reinforcement learning problems are modelled as a Markov decision process. Inspired by biological evolution, an evolutionary algorithm searches the solution space by creating a population of solutions. Another popular method is the tournament selection where randomly selected individuals participate in a tournament play to define the winner (individuals selected for passing on their genes).



Discover an Underrated face of Artificial Intelligence: the genetic algorithm.

#artificialintelligence

In this article, I am going to explain the concept of genetic algorithm. This algorithm is especially efficient with optimization problems. The backpack optimization is a classical algorithm problem. The genetic algorithm is well suited to solve that because it's an optimization problem with a lot of possible solutions.

Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Defense

#artificialintelligence

Therefore, there is an increasing opinion that effective cyber defense can only be provided by real time flexible Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems with learning capability. The offensive cyber operations could involve both military and intelligence agencies since both computer network exploitation and computer network attacks are involved. Artificial Neural Networks- In 2012, Barman, and Khataniar studied the development of intrusion detection systems, IDSs based on neural network systems. Miscellaneous AI Applications- In 2014, Barani proposed a genetic algorithm (GA) and artificial immune system (AIS), GAAIS – a dynamic intrusion detection method for Mobile ad hoc Networks based on genetic algorithm and AIS.

This is part of a project I've been working in that involves using ML techniques to robot control. The first one is applying evolutionary algorithms to a neural controller. You cna find a Jupyter Notebook on the linked repository.


Introduction to Genetic Algorithm & their application in data science

#artificialintelligence

Few days back, I started working on a practice problem – Big Mart Sales. Therefore, we generally use Roulette Wheel Selection method. You always look at the feature importance of some model, and then manually decide the threshold, and select the features which have importance above that threshold. Once this code finishes running, tpot_exported_pipeline.py will contain the Python code for the optimised pipeline.
