Module contents
Computational Intelligence comprises intelligent and adaptive methods for optimisation and learning. The module "Computational Intelligence I" concentrates on methods for evolutionary optimisation and heuristic approaches. The exercises introduce and deepen practical aspects of the implementation and algorithmic design, also taking into account application aspects.

Overview of Content:
  • foundations of optimisation
  • genetic algorithms and evolution strategies
  • parameter control and self-adaptation
  • runtime analysis
  • swarm algorithms
  • constrained optimisation
  • multi-objective optimisation
  • meta-modeling
