Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper presents a comparative study between genetic and probabilistic search approaches of evolutionary computation. They are both applied for optimizing the behavior of multiple neural-controlled homogeneous agents whose spatial coordination tasks can only be successfully achieved through emergent cooperation. Both approaches demonstrate effective solutions of high performance; however, the genetic search approach appears to be both more robust and computationally preferred for this multi-agent case study.
