Feature Selection using Metaheuristics and EAs

Feature selection is one of common preprocessing tasks, which is performed to reduce the number of inputs of intelligent algorithms and models. This helps us to simplify the models, reduce the computation cost of model training, and enhance the generalization abilities of the model and prevention of over-training. For more information on feature selection concepts and methods, you can refer ...

ACO for Continuous Domains in MATLAB

Originally, the Ant Algorithms are used to solve discrete and combinatorial optimization problems. Various extensions of Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) are proposed to deal with optimization problems, defined in continuous domains. One of the most useful algorithms of this type, is ACOR, the Ant Colony Optimization for Continuous Domains, proposed by Socha and Dorigo, in 2008 (here). ACOR is an ...

Ant Colony Optimization in MATLAB

Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) are a set of probabilistic metaheuristics and an intelligent optimization algorithms, inspired by social behavior of ants. ACO algorithms are also categorized as Swarm Intelligence methods, because of implementation of this paradigm, via simulation of ants behavior in the structure of these algorithms. First ACO algorithm is proposed by Marco Dorigo in his PhD thesis, in ...
