A learning architecture for scheduling workflow applications in the cloud
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 ...
The influence of random interactions and decision heuristics on norm evolution in social networks
In this paper we explore the effect that random social interactions have on the emergence and evolution of social norms in a simulated population of agents. In our model agents observe the behaviour of others and update ...
Particle swarm optimisation with gradually increasing directed neighbourhoods
(Association for Computing Machiner, 2011)
Particle swarm optimisation (PSO) is an intelligent random search algorithm, and the key to success is to effectively balance between the exploration of the solution space in the early stages and the exploitation of the ...
