Altering the granularity of neutrality in a multi-layered genetic algorithm
(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 ...
Evolving collective behaviours in simulated kilobots
(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 ...
Diversifying techniques and neutrality in genetic algorithms
(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 ...
Examining the impact of neutrality on genetic algorithm population evolution
(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 ...
Neutrality through transcription and translation in genetic algorithm representation
(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 ...
A genetic algorithm with a multi-layered genotype-phenotype mapping
(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 ...
