  • Altering the granularity of neutrality in a multi-layered genetic algorithm 

    Hill, Seamus; O'Riordan, Colm (SciTePress Digital Library, 2014)
    By adopting a basic interpretation of the biological processes of transcription and translation, the multilayered GA (MGA) introduces a genotype-phenotype mapping for a haploid genotype, which allows the granularity of the ...
  • Diversifying techniques and neutrality in genetic algorithms 

    Hill, Seamus; O'Riordan, Colm (SciTePress Digital Library, 2016)
    This paper examines the implicit maintenance of diversity within a population through the inclusion of a layered genotype-phenotype map (GP-map) in a Genetic Algorithm (GA), based on the principal of Neutral theory. The ...
  • Evolving collective behaviours in simulated kilobots 

    Holland, Jane; Griffith, Josephine; O'Riordan, Colm (Association for Computing Machinery, 2018-04-09)
    The field of Evolutionary Robotics has multiple common tasks and widely used benchmark activities such as navigation, obstacle avoidance, and phototaxis. We present an evolutionary approach to learning behaviours that ...
  • Evolving Racetrack Knowledge in a Racing Game. 

    Redfern, Sam (21st National Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Science, 2010-07-30)
    This paper discusses the use of a Genetic Algorithm (GA) to evolve waypoint-based racing lines for computer-controlled cars in an online game. One goal is the reduction of developer effort, in order to automatically produce ...
  • Examining the impact of neutrality on genetic algorithm population evolution 

    Hill, Seamus; O'Riordan, Colm (SciTePress Digital Library, 2015-11-12)
    This paper examines the introduction of neutrality as proposed by Kimura (Kimura, 1968) into the genotype-phenotype mapping of a Genetic Algorithm (GA). The paper looks at the evolution of both a simple GA (SGA) and a ...
  • A genetic algorithm with a multi-layered genotype-phenotype mapping 

    Hill, Seamus; O'Riordan, Colm (SciTePress Digital Library, 2010-08-24)
    In this paper we investigate the introduction of a multiple-layer genotype-phenotype mapping to a Genetic Algorithm (GA) which attempts to mimic more closely, the effects of nature. The motivation for introducing multiple-layers ...
  • A learning architecture for scheduling workflow applications in the cloud 

    Barrett, Enda; Howley, Enda; Duggan, James (IEEE, 2011-09-15)
    The scheduling of workflow applications involves the mapping of individual workflow tasks to computational resources, based on a range of functional and non-functional quality of service requirements. Workflow applications ...
  • Neutrality through transcription and translation in genetic algorithm representation 

    Hill, Seamus; O'Riordan, Colm (SciTePress Digital Library, 2012-10-05)
    This paper examines the use of the biological concepts of transcription and translation, to introduce neutrality into the representation of a genetic algorithm (GA). The aim of the paper is to attempt to identify problem ...
