Introduction to Evolutionary Computing, 2nd edition - Programmer Books


The overall structure of this new edition is three-tier: Part I presents the basics, Part II is concerned with methodological issues, and Part III discusses advanced topics. In the second edition the authors have reorganized the material to focus on problems, how to represent them, and then how to choose and design algorithms for different representations. They also added a chapter on problems, reflecting the overall book focus on problem-solvers, a chapter on parameter tuning, which they combined with the parameter control and "how-to" chapters into a methodological part, and finally a chapter on evolutionary robotics with an outlook on possible exciting developments in this field. The book is suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses in artificial intelligence and computational intelligence, and for self-study by practitioners and researchers engaged with all aspects of bioinspired design and optimization.

Train Neural Networks Using a Genetic Algorithm in Python with PyGAD


The genetic algorithm (GA) is a biologically-inspired optimization algorithm. It has in recent years gained importance, as it's simple while also solving complex problems like travel route optimization, training machine learning algorithms, working with single and multi-objective problems, game playing, and more. Deep neural networks are inspired by the idea of how the biological brain works. It's a universal function approximator, which is capable of simulating any function, and is now used to solve the most complex problems in machine learning. What's more, they're able to work with all types of data (images, audio, video, and text).

Can AI Really Evolve into Superintelligence All by Itself?


At Science earlier this year it was claimed that Darwinian evolution alone can make computers much smarter. As a result, researchers hoped to "discover something really fundamental that will take a long time for humans to figure out": Artificial intelligence (AI) is evolving--literally. Researchers have created software that borrows concepts from Darwinian evolution, including "survival of the fittest," to build AI programs that improve generation after generation without human input. The program replicated decades of AI research in a matter of days, and its designers think that one day, it could discover new approaches to AI. The program discovers algorithms using a loose approximation of evolution.

Genetic Algorithm-Everything You Need To Know


Genetic Algorithm is a randomized search algorithm. A randomized search algorithm is an algorithm that incorporates some kind of randomness or probability in its methodology. Here in GA, a random process is used to create an initial population pool. A Population Pool is a collection of individuals of the current generation. After the population is created we evaluate the fitness value of each individual.

TPOT for Automated Machine Learning in Python


Automated Machine Learning (AutoML) refers to techniques for automatically discovering well-performing models for predictive modeling tasks with very little user involvement. TPOT is an open-source library for performing AutoML in Python. It makes use of the popular Scikit-Learn machine learning library for data transforms and machine learning algorithms and uses a Genetic Programming stochastic global search procedure to efficiently discover a top-performing model pipeline for a given dataset. In this tutorial, you will discover how to use TPOT for AutoML with Scikit-Learn machine learning algorithms in Python.

Cartographic Generalization With A.I and Machine Learning


The process of cartographic generalization is used to produce a harmonized picture at different scales of geospatial features. Generalization is an essential part of any cartographic production process and is, generally, a process that is still at least partly, manually driven. The move to ENC charting has enabled some degree of automation of chart creation at different scales through the development of features for managing "scale-dependent" features. Database driven production systems, able to store the data for multiple charts in a single database instance, are then able to reuse features for different charts reducing the need for manual intervention. The issue remains though, that many features require extensive manual editing in order to produce generalized products which are acceptable to both cartographer and end-user.

High-frequency component helps explain the generalization of convolutional neural networks


There are many works aiming to explain the generalization behavior of neural networks using heavy mathematical machinery, but we will do something different here: with a simple and intuitive twist of data, we will show that many generalization mysteries (like adversarial vulnerability, BatchNorm's efficacy, and the "generalization paradox") might be results of our overconfidence in processing data through naked eyes. The models may have not outsmarted us, but the data has. Let's start with an interesting observation (Figure 1): we trained a ResNet-18 with the Cifar10 dataset, picked a test sample, and plotted the model's prediction confidence for this sample. Then we mapped the sample into the frequency domain through Fourier transform, and cut the frequency representation into its high-frequency component (HFC) and low-frequency component (LFC). Although this phenomenon can only be observed with a subset of samples ( 600 images), it's striking enough to raise an alarm.

How This Startup Is Using Swarm AI To Make Deep Learning Technology Accessible For Everyone


Swarm AI is a modern AI technology that is relatively new to organisations. It blends global and local insights to improve and optimise business decisions. Though the concept of swarm intelligence is now new in literature, it is increasingly being used to predict everything from stock market movements to forecasting sales. Advances in the Internet of Things technology, machine learning and 5G has made artificial swarm systems faster and more efficient. In today's world of business that constantly witnesses increasing flux, scale, and complexity, artificial swarm intelligence will help them identify new growth opportunities as well as to anticipate and manage disruption.

Communications of the ACM

The biobot developed at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign couples engineered skeletal muscle tissue to a 3D printed flexible skeleton. Although robotic humanoids now perform backflips and autonomous drones fly in formation, even the most advanced robots are relatively primitive when compared with living machines. The running, jumping, swimming, and flying creatures that cover our planet's surface have long inspired engineers. Yet a subset of researchers are not just taking tips from living creatures. These roboticists, computer scientists, and bioengineers are combining artificial materials with living tissue, or making machines entirely from living cells.
