1 Introduction to Genetic Algorithms Based on Chapter 10 of Marsland Chapter 9 of Mitchell

2 Genetic Algorithms - History Pioneered by John Holland in the 1970s Became popular in the late 1980s Based on ideas from Darwinian Evolution Can be used to solve a variety of problems that are not easy to solve using other techniques

3 Motivation: Evolution in the real world Each cell of a living thing contains chromosomes - strings of DNA Each chromosome contains a set of genes - blocks of DNA Each gene determines some aspect of the organism (like eye color) A collection of genes is sometimes called a genotype A collection of what can be seen (like eye colour) is sometimes called a phenotype Reproduction involves recombination of genes from parents and then small amounts of mutation (errors) in copying The fitness of an organism is how much it can reproduce before it dies Evolution based on survival of the fittest

4 Some GA applications Domain Control Design Scheduling Robotics Machine Learning Signal Processing Game Playing Combinatorial Optimization Application Types gas pipeline, pole balancing, missile evasion, pursuit semiconductor layout, aircraft design, keyboard configuration, communication networks manufacturing, facility scheduling, resource allocation trajectory planning designing neural networks, improving classification algorithms, classifier systems filter design poker, checkers, prisoner s dilemma set covering, travelling salesman, routing, bin packing, graph colouring and partitioning

5 Start with a Dream Suppose you have a difficult problem You don t know how to solve it What can you do?

6 A dumb solution A blind generate and test algorithm: Repeat Generate a random possible solution, something that looks like a solution! Test the solution and see how good it is Until solution is good enough

7 Can we use this dumb idea? Sometimes - yes: if there are only a few possible solutions and you have enough time then such a method could be used For most problems - no: many possible solutions with no time to try them all so this method cannot be used in general

8 A less-dumb idea (GA) Generate a set of random solutions Repeat Test each solution in the set (rank them) Remove some bad solutions from set Duplicate some good solutions make small changes to some of them Until best solution is good enough

9 How do you encode a solution? i.e., write the solution in the program? Obviously this depends on the problem! GAs may encode solutions as fixed length bitstrings (e.g , , ) Each bit represents some aspect of the proposed solution to the problem Decimal or other representations are also possibe. For GAs to work, we need to be able to test any string and get a score indicating how good that solution is; i.e., we need a heuristic evaluation function. This is called the fitness function.

10 Silly Example - Drilling for Oil Imagine you had to drill for oil somewhere along a single 1km desert road Problem: choose the best place on the road that produces the most oil per day We could represent each solution as a position on the road Say, a whole number between [ ]

11 Where to drill for oil? Randomly, or with some fore knowledge, say we have two solutions at 300m and 900m to start with. We will start with a population of 2 solutions and try to make them better. At any solution, we should be able to perform some experiments/collect data to evaluate the solution. Solution1 = 300 Solution2 = 900 Road

12 Digging for Oil The set of all possible solutions [ ] is called the search space or state space In this case it s just one number but it could be many numbers or symbols Often GAs code numbers in binary producing a bit string representing a solution In our example we choose 10 bits which is enough to represent

13 Convert to binary string In GAs these encoded strings are sometimes called genotypes or chromosomes and the individual bits are sometimes called genes

14 Drilling for Oil Solution1 = 300 ( ) Solution2 = 900 ( ) Road O I L 30 5 Location 30 and 5 are scores assigned to the solutions

15 Searching for Oil: One Generation at a time Starting population of size 2: ( , ) In this case, we see that one of our solutions ( ) has a score (fitness function value) of 30 and the other ( ) a fitness of 5. So, following our algorithm, we can remove the bad solution from our population of size 2. We can also duplicate the good solution that has a fitness of 30. This leads to a population: ( , ) where both solutions are the same. Maybe, now we can make small changes (mutate) one of the solutions (say the second) by changing one single bit. Our population at the beginning of the second generation becomes (say): ( , )

16 We have seen how to: Summary Represent possible solutions as a number Encode a number into a binary string Generate a score for each number given a function of how good each solution is - this is often called a fitness function We also saw how to create a new generation of solutions. Our silly oil example is really optimization over a function f(x) where we perform search over x

17 Search Space For a simple function f(x) the search space is one dimensional. But by encoding several values into the chromosome many dimensions can be searched e.g., two dimensions f(x,y) Search space can be visualized as a surface or fitness landscape in which fitness dictates height Each possible genotype is a point in the space A GA tries to move the points to better places (higher fitness) in the the space

18 Fitness landscapes

19 Search Space Obviously, the nature of the search space dictates how a GA will perform A completely random space would be bad for a GA Also GAs can get stuck in local maxima if search spaces contain lots of these Generally, spaces in which small improvements get closer to the global optimum are good

20 Back to the (GA) Algorithm Generate a set of random solutions Repeat Test each solution in the set (rank them) Remove some bad solutions from set Duplicate some good solutions make small changes to some of them Until best solution is good enough

21 Adding Sex - Crossover Although it may work for simple search spaces our algorithm is still very simple It relies on random mutation to find a good solution It has been found that by introducing sex into the algorithm better results are obtained This is done by selecting two parents during reproduction and combining their genes to produce offspring

22 Adding Sex - Crossover Two high scoring parent bit strings (chromosomes) are selected ancombid with some probability (crossover rate) ned Producing two new offspring (bit strings) Each offspring may then be changed randomly (mutation)

23 Selecting Parents Many schemes are possible so long as better scoring chromosomes more likely selected Score is often termed the fitness Roulette Wheel selection can be used: Add up the fitnesses of all chromosomes Generate a random number R in that range Select the first chromosome in the population that - when all previous fitnesses are added - gives you at least the value R

24 Example population No. Chromosome Fitness

25 Roulette Wheel Selection Rnd[0..18] = 7 Rnd[0..18] = Chromosome4 Chromosome6 Parent1 Parent2

26 Roulette wheel selection

27 Crossover - Recombination Parent1 Offspring Parent2 Offspring Crossover single point - random With some high probability (crossover rate) apply crossover to the parents. (typical values are 0.8 to 0.95)

28 Mutation mutate Offspring Offspring Offspring Offspring Original offspring Mutated offspring With some small probability (the mutation rate) flip each bit in the offspring (typical values between 0.1 and 0.001)

29 Back to the (GA) Algorithm Generate a population of random chromosomes Repeat (each generation) Calculate fitness of each chromosome Repeat Mutate some of the solutions Use( roulette) selection to select pairs of parents Generate offspring with crossover Until a new population has been produced Until best solution is good enough

30 The GA cycle

31 genetic algorithm learning Fitness criteria Generations The average fitness of the population usually rises, till a limit.

32 Many parameters to set Any GA implementation needs to decide on a number of parameters: Population size (N), mutation rate (m), crossover rate (c) Often these have to be tuned based on results obtained - no general theory to deduce good values Typical values might be: N = 50, m = 0.05, c = 0.9

33 Applications of GAs We saw a toy example of GAs in this presentation. Gas have been used in thousands of real-life applications. cap03/cap_3.htmlhttp://brainz.org/15-realworld-applications-genetic-algorithms/

34 Applications of GAs Optimizing list of parameters for aircraft design Optimize routing of telephone networks Planning the path of a robot arm from one point to another. Modeling how international actors may behave in situations like war and peace Finding how a simulated aircraft can evade simulated missiles. Designing configuration of a neural network. Scheduling activities in a laboratory; the activities interact in various ways. Designing sofware keyboards for a variety of languages.

35 Many Variants of GA Different kinds of selection (not roulette) Tournament: Pick two random chromosomes, evaluate them, keep the better one Elitism: Keep a few of the best ones from generation to generation unaltered Different recombination Multi-point crossover 3 way crossover Different kinds of encoding other than bit string Integer values Ordered set of symbols Different kinds of mutation: random, uniform, Gaussian
