AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE USE OF SWARM INTELLIGENCE FOR AN EVOLUTIONARY ALGORITHM OPTIMISATION - The Optimisation Performance of Differential Evolution Algorithm Coupled with Stochastic Diffusion Search

Mohammad Majid al-Rifaie, John Mark Bishop, Tim Blackwell

Abstract

The integration of Swarm Intelligence (SI) algorithms and Evolutionary algorithms (EAs) might be one of the future approaches in the Evolutionary Computation (EC). This work narrates the early research on using Stochastic Diffusion Search (SDS) – a swarm intelligence algorithm – to empower the Differential Evolution (DE) – an evolutionary algorithm – over a set of optimisation problems. The results reported herein suggest that the powerful resource allocation mechanism deployed in SDS has the potential to improve the optimisation capability of the classical evolutionary algorithm used in this experiment. Different performance measures and statistical analyses were utilised to monitor the behaviour of the final coupled algorithm.
