Computational aspects of cellular intelligence and their role in artificial intelligence. (2014)
Thesis
GERRARD, C.E. 2014. Computational aspects of cellular intelligence and their role in artificial intelligence. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The work presented in this thesis is concerned with an exploration of the computational aspects of the primitive intelligence associated with single-celled organisms. The main aim is to explore this Cellular Intelligence and its role within Artificia... Read More about Computational aspects of cellular intelligence and their role in artificial intelligence..

Minimal walsh structure and ordinal linkage of monotonicity-invariant function classes on bit strings. (2014)

Proceedings of the 2014 Genetic and evolutionary computation conference (GECCO 2014): a recombination of the 23rd International conference on genetic algorithms (ICGA-2014), and the 19th Annual genetic programming conference (GP-2014), 12-16 July 2014, Vancouver, Canada. New York: ACM [online], pages 333-340. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1145/2576768.2598240

Problem structure, or linkage, refers to the interaction between variables in a black-box fitness function. Discovering structure is a feature of a range of algorithms, including estimation of distribution algorithms (EDAs) and perturbation methods (...

Applications and design of cooperative multi-agent ARN-based systems. (2014)
Journal Article
GERRARD, C.E., MCCALL, J., MACLEOD, C. and COGHILL, G.M. 2015. Applications and design of cooperative multi-agent ARN-based systems. Soft computing [online], 19(6), pages 1581-1594. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s00500-014-1330-9

The Artificial Reaction Network (ARN) is an Artificial Chemistry inspired by Cell Signalling Networks (CSNs). Its purpose is to represent chemical circuitry and to explore the computational properties responsible for generating emergent high-level be...

Multi-objective particle swarm optimisation: methods and applications. (2014)
Thesis
AL MOUBAYED, N. 2014. Multi-objective particle swarm optimisation: methods and applications. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Solving real life optimisation problems is a challenging engineering venture. Since the early days of research on optimisation it was realised that many problems do not simply have one optimisation objective. This led to the development of multi-obje...
