I just uploaded the technical report of the paper we put together for CEC 2010 on how we can scale up eCGA using a MapReduce approach. The paper, besides exploring the Hadoop implementation, it also presents some very compelling results obtained with MongoDB (a document based store able to perform parallel MapReduce tasks via sharding). […]
If you are planning to submit a paper for the 2010 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference, the deadline is January 13, 2010 (and now extended to January 27th). You can find more information at the GECCO 2010 calendar site.
Below you may find the abstract to and the link to the technical report of the paper entitled “Scaling Genetic Algorithms using MapReduce” that will be presented at the Ninth International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA) 2009 by Verma, A., Llorà, X., Campbell, R.H., Goldberg, D.E. next month. Abstract:Genetic algorithms(GAs) are increasingly […]
Below you may find the slides I used during GECCO 2009 to present the paper titled “Data-Intensive Computing for Competent Genetic Algorithms: A Pilot Study using Meandre”. An early preprint in form of technical report can be found as an IlliGAL TR No. 2009001 or the full paper at the ACM digital library
Yup, never happened to me before. In John Koza’s words: Hat Trick, best paper in EDA track and two Bronze medals in the HUMIES competition. I just think that I was lucky and blessed to have the pleasure to work with such great people. It would not have happened if it wasn’t for them. Below […]
