T#2: Evolution Strategies and Applications

Handout: T2-Handout
(copyrighted materials. The copyright belongs to the tutorial presenter unless otherwise stated)

Prof. Dr. Thomas Bäck is full professor and head of the Natural Computing Group at LIACS since 2002. Previously, he was Associate Professor at LIACS from 1996 – 2002, and CEO and Chief Scientist of NuTech Solutions GmbH and Inc., Dortmund (Germany) and Charlotte, NC. He received his PhD with greatest distinction in 1994 from University of Dortmund, Germany. Prof. Bäck has more than 200 publications on natural computing algorithms, is the author of a book on evolutionary algorithms, entitled Evolutionary Algorithms in Theory and Practice (OUP, 1996), co-editor of the Handbook of Evolutionary Computation (OUP, 2002), and co-editor of the Handbook of Natural Computing (Springer, 2012). He is editorial board member and associate editor of a number of journals on evolutionary and natural computation (Journal of Natural Computing, Theoretical Computer Science C, Evolutionary Computation), co-editor of the Natural Computation Book Series, and has served as program chair for all major conferences in evolutionary computation. He received the best dissertation award from the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) in 1995 and is an elected fellow of the International Society for Genetic and Evolutionary Computation for his contributions to the field. Prof. Bäck has ample experience in matching the requirements of industrial optimisation and decision making tasks with problem-solving algorithms such as evolutionary computation, decision making, and data driven modelling algorithms. He leads and has led projects with companies such as Air Liquide, BMW, Daimler, Ford, Honda, PepsiCo, and many others, and has successfully solved some of the most complex industrial problems. Prof. Bäck was the first researcher who developed a unified version of evolutionary algorithms by abstracting from the specific principles of algorithms such as genetic algorithms and evolutionary strategies. He was the first to present a new model for the theoretical analysis of genetic algorithms, and used it to developed self-adaptive strategy parameter control techniques for genetic algorithms. He has also very successfully focused on solving challenging industrial problems by evolutionary computation. His new book, Contemporary Evolution Strategies (Th. Bäck, C. Foussette, P. Krause) is available in October 2013 from Springer.
