New Pathways in Coevolutionary Computation.

The simultaneous evolution of two or more species with coupled fitness—coevolution—has been put to good use in the field of evolutionary computation. Herein, we present two new forms of coevolutionary algorithms, which we have recently designed and applied with success. OMNIREP is a cooperative coevolutionary algorithm that discovers both a representation and an encoding for solving a particular problem of interest. SAFE is a commensalistic coevolutionary algorithm that maintains two coevolving populations: a population of candidate solutions and a population of candidate objective functions needed to measure solution quality during evolution.
