Evolutionary Computing within Grid Environment [chapter]

Ashutosh Tiwari, Gokop Goteng, Rajkumar Roy
2007 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
This chapter demonstrates that grid-enabled evolutionary computing marks the future of optimisation techniques.  ...  Service-oriented and autonomic computing features of Grid are discussed to highlight how EC algorithms can be published as services by service providers and used by service requestors dynamically.  ...  This gave incentive to scientists and technologists to invent and fabricate many devices that can use electricity.  ...

Evolutionary cognitive economics

Gilles Paquet
1998 Information Economics and Policy  
It is one of the great merits of 'information economists' to have generated a greater awareness (1) of the extent to which economic systems have been transformed, over the last few decades, from arrangements  ...  ensure a viable process of production, allocation and distribution of goods, services and information for a population.  ...  It is not easy to construct a robust corporate culture. It is fundamentally a matter of trust. Trust is at the core of the fabric of the communities of practice.  ...

Evolutionary Developmental Robotics: Improving Morphology and Control of Physical Robots

Vuk Vujovic, Andre Rosendo, Luzius Brodbeck, Fumiya Iida
2017 Artificial Life  
To test diverse robot morphologies, robot legs of variable shapes were generated during the evolutionary process and autonomously built using additive fabrication.  ...  Evolutionary algorithms have previously been applied to the design of morphology and control of robots.  ...  An external robotic arm is employed to implement our Evo-devo process on a physical system, as it is capable of autonomously fabricating and testing evolved legged robots.  ...

An Evolutionary Developmental Approach to Cultural Evolution

Claes Andersson, Anton Törnberg, Petter Törnberg
2014 Current Anthropology  
Evolutionary developmental theories in biology see the processes and organization of organisms as crucial for understanding the dynamic behavior of organic evolution.  ...  What emerges is a set of concepts and models that allow us to consider entirely new types of explanations for the evolution of cultures.  ...  In the case of humans, understanding our past certainly depends upon an evolutionary theory of culture, as they argue.  ...

From evolutionary computation to the evolution of things

Agoston E. Eiben, Jim Smith
2015 Nature  
The proposal that evolution could be used as a metaphor for problem-solving came with the invention of the computer 1 .  ...  These systems will be different because they replace the traditional design-and-deploy approach by a design-deploy-adapt loop where the evolutionary component is a principal part of the system.  ...  BOX 2: A specific evolutionary algorithm for model discovery and fitting Model fitting is a problem that frequently occurs in scientific modelling, knowledge discovery, and data mining.  ...
