Overview of Algorithms for Swarm Intelligence



Swarm intelligence (SI) is based on collective behavior of self-organized systems. Typical swarm intelligence schemes include Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Ant Colony System (ACS), Stochastic Diffusion Search (SDS), Bacteria Foraging (BF), the Bees Algorithm, Swarm Robotics, etc. Besides the applications to conventional optimization problems, SI can be used in controlling robots and unmanned vehicles, predicting social behaviors, enhancing the telecommunication and computer networks, etc. Indeed, the use of swarm optimization can be applied to a variety of fields in engineering and social sciences. This talk reviews some popular algorithms in the field of swarm intelligence for problems of optimization. The overview and experiments of Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Ant Colony System (ACS), Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) and Cat Swarm Optimization (CSO) are given. The parallel versions of ACS, PSO and CSO are also introduced. In addition, some comparisons are made between these algorithms.
