Perhaps one of the most important sessions at GECCO. Interesting talks about EC in practice today at #GECCO2016 from leading experts
- Bogdan Filipic
- Carlos A. Coello Coello
- Anna Esparcia Alcazar
- Michael Affenzeller
- Thomas Bäck
- Felipe Campelo
- Erik Goodman
plus a panel discussion. Please check http://gecco-2016.sigevo.org/index.html/EC+in+Practice.
Today, at 10:40 Thomas Bartz-Beielstein will talk about “Surrogate Model-based Optimization in Practice” in Wind River A. More: http://gecco-2016.sigevo.org/index.html/EC+in+Practice.
BTW, Jürgen Branke is talking about “Efficient Global Optimization” (EGO) right now in Wind River B in his tutorial about “Simulation Optimization”. EGO will be discussed in the “Surrogate Model-based Optimization in Practice” talk, too.
for today’s Evolutionary Computation in Practice sessions.
Anyone who clicks on the link until August 24, 2016, will be taken to the final version of the article “Multi-fidelity modeling and optimization of biogas plants” (Martin Zaefferer, Daniel Gaida, Thomas Bartz-Beielstein) on ScienceDirect for free. No sign up or registration is needed – just click and read! Here is the link: http://authors.elsevier.com/a/1TK9q5aecSRzFl
Highlights of this article read as follows:
- Accurate and fast simulation models mandatory for the optimization of biogas plants.
- Improve precision of simulation models without increasing the number of evaluations.
- Combining results: complex simulator, simple estimation-based model and surrogate model.
- Advantages and limitations of multi-fidelity modeling approaches are discussed.
