Enabling and Measuring Complexity in Evolving Designs using Generative Representations for Artificial Architecture
(Brock University, 2012-11-07)
As the complexity of evolutionary design problems grow, so too must the quality of solutions scale to that complexity. In this research, we develop a genetic programming system with individuals encoded as tree-based ...
Automatic Inference of Graph Models for Complex Networks with Genetic Programming
(Brock University, 2013-07-26)
Complex networks can arise naturally and spontaneously from all things that act as a part of a larger system. From the patterns of socialization between people to the way biological systems organize themselves, complex ...
Passive Solar Building Design Using Genetic Programming
(Brock University, 2013-10-28)
Passive solar building design is the process of designing a building while considering sunlight exposure for receiving heat in winter and rejecting heat in summer. The main goal of a passive solar building design is to ...
Real-Time Automatic Object Classification and Tracking using Genetic Programming and NVIDIA R CUDA TM
(Brock University, 2014-08-01)
Genetic Programming (GP) is a widely used methodology for solving various computational problems. GP's problem solving ability is usually hindered by its long execution times. In this thesis, GP is applied toward real-time ...
Network Similarity Measures and Automatic Construction of Graph Models using Genetic Programming
(Brock University, 2014-09-05)
A complex network is an abstract representation of an intricate system of interrelated elements where the patterns of connection hold significant meaning. One particular complex network is a social network whereby the ...
