Title:Micro-scale searching algorithm and its application

Abstract: Intelligent optimization algorithm is an important artificial intelligence method which is often used to solve complex black-box optimization problems. From the perspective of the nature of algorithm performance, this report will describe the fundamental reasons and key points of algorithm performance improvement. It will introduce the idea of micro-scale searching algorithm: By determining the effective decision subset of optimization problems, adjust the reasonable allocation of computational resources and achieve effective search in a small space, thus obtaining the optimal solution or high-quality feasible solution of the problem. Based on this algorithmic idea, The report will analyze the micro-scale searching assumptions and performance nature of intelligent optimization algorithms such as genetic algorithm (GA), particle swarm optimization (PSO), differential evolution (DE), ant colony optimization (ACO). It will also summarize and discuss the pitfalls of analyzing performance of evolutionary computing methods. Finally, this report will introduce the applications of micro-scale searching algorithm ideas in industrial software, software engineering, computer vision, digital logistics, etc.
