US-2010-0106714-A1: Method and Apparatus for Automatic Configuration of Meta-Heuristic Algorithms In A Problem Solving Environment (2015)
Abstract: A methodology is presented to address the need for rapid generation and optimization of algorithms that are efficient in solving a given class of problems within the framework of a software environment. The environment incorporates an evolutionary learning methodology which automatically optimizes the configurations of procedural components of the algorithm. In this way, both the efficiency and the quality of algorithm development is enhanced significantly.
