Keynote Details

We are pleased to confirm that our keynote talk will be delivered by Prof. Jim Smith from the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK. Interactive Memetic Algorithms for optimisation, design, and modelling Interactive Evolutionary Algorithms have been successfully applied in many applications where the measure of ‘quality' is a user’s satisfaction. However, people often get bored, or frustrated by over-simplistic tools, and even with the best intentions, their judgements become less consistent over time. Key to maintaining engagement is to offer a richer form of human-machine teaming that can: support other paradigms such as one-shot learning; take account of human frailties; and above all offer more transparent human-machine collaboration. Using a series of examples drawn from different application domains, I will argue that the Memetic paradigm offers an ideal way to support a richer range of interactions. Interactive MAs can be applied to ’straight-forwar

iGECCO - This Sunday

We are looking forward to welcoming participants to the first edition of iGECCO this weekend.
