When Should You Use Genetic Algorithms (GA)?

Tuesday, January 15, 2008 | Labels: , | |

Genetic Algorithms (GA) are more suitable for the following problems:
  • Domain knowledge is not sufficient enough to narrow the search space. Genetic Algorithms has overcome the main drawback of expert systems, providing rules.

  • Problems where the traditional search methods fail.

  • The search space is vast, complex and poorly understood. Genetic Algorithms are proven to provide robust search in complex search spaces.
