BCMS Honours Topic: "Differential Evolution on the Cloud."
Differential Evolution (DE) is one of the most effective
meta-heuristic optimization techniques in existence today.
However, in order to scale DE to problems involving hundreds or thousands of dimensions, cloud computing is needed. I will be investigating different methods of distributing evolutionary
algorithms on the cloud, and implementing a cloud-based
platform for running large-scale DE optimizations.
