English title
Advanced Methods of Nature-Inspired Optimisation and HPC Implementation for the Real-Life Applications

Nature-inspired optimization, evolutionary algorithm; computational intelligence, key enabling technologies; international cooperation


The scientific aim of the project is to design advanced evolutionary algorithms (EA) that are applicable in the up to date complex engineering optimizing and designing problems. Another objective is to adapt such algorithms for different user-defined platforms, e.g. for powerful GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) or, on the other hand, for low-power embedded systems. The project is divided into three solution phases called Work Packages (WP1-3). Within the first phase, new and hybrid evolutionary algorithms will be designed and evaluated. The implementations of HPC (High Performance Computing) and embedded systems will be realized in the second phase, where the pre-defined efficiency (computational performance, scalability, energy efficiency) will be emphasized. Within the third phase, the practical applications, referred to as the case studies consequently, will be elaborated. This final phase will prove the efficiency of the proposed algorithms and practical applicability w.r.t. the predefined real tasks. The integration objective of the project is to evolve the existing international co-operation and establish new collaboration of the research teams within BUT working on evolutionary algorithms with leading scientific institutions abroad. The aim is to present common publications containing new scientific results.
