Topic: Overview of Bio-Inspired Computing
Bio-Inspired Computing is based on collective behavior of self-organized systems. Typical Bio-Inspired schemes include particle swarm optimization (PSO), ant colony system (ACS), stochastic diffusion search (SDS), bacteria foraging (BF), the bees algorithm etc. Besides the applications to conventional optimization problems, Bio-Inspired Computing can be used in controlling robots and unmanned vehicles, predicting social behaviors, enhancing the telecommunication and computer networks, etc. Indeed, the use of Bio-Inspired Computing can be applied to a variety of fields in engineering and social sciences. This talk reviews some popular algorithms in the field of Bio-Inspired Computing for problems of optimization. The detail overview of Particle Swarm Optimization and Cat Swarm Optimization, Ant Colony System (ACS), Monkey King Algorithm and Artificial Bee Colony are given.
