Following from my post last week, I’ll be talking about an example application for Stochastic Diffusion Search, otherwise known as SDS. I believe that this can be used in many different ways, but I will explain how I think it could be implemented in a search by image algorithm. If you do not know how […]

# SDS – An Explanation

What is SDS? Stochastic Diffusion Search (SDS) is a search algorithm that using swarm intelligence to achieve its outcome. The algorithm contains agents, that each have a hypothesis and a current state, and each of them communicate with each other. How does it work? In order for the swarm to find the model they are […]

# Applications for Dispersive Flies Optimisation

In the following article, I will be expanding upon the information I had given in my previous article by explaining how Dispersive Flies Optimisation can be used in a game environment such like Age of Empires. The Problem The problem that I intend DFO to solve will be to create agents for a real time […]

# Dispersive Flies Optimisation

What is Dispersive Flies Optimisation? Dispersive Flies Optimisation (DFO) is a swarm intelligence model based on how flies interact in the real world. From a paper produced by Mohammad Al-Rifaie, this has been created and used to benchmark different test functions for optimisation. The progress of the flies optimisation is based on a value called […]

# “No Free Lunch” Theorem

The “No Free Lunch” Theorem is the idea that every problem cannot be solved by a single model. This would imply that multiple models must be used/built for different particular problems. In the case of computational complexity, the “No Free Lunch” theorem states for all algorithms solving all problems that the average output would be […]

# Processing Tweet Tuesday – #2

Hello and welcome to the second instalment of Processing Tweet Tuesdays. This weeks processing tweet creates an image that gives a vibe of the northern lights. The image is divided into two by colour as the green and purple light flow out from the centre line to the bottom left and top right respectively. The […]

# Processing Tweet Tuesday – #1

So, it’s the first Processing Tweet Tuesday! What is a Processing Tweet? A Processing Tweet is a Processing program that can fit inside a tweet. For those who do not know what a tweet is, it is a message that is up to 140 characters long. Essentially this is working code that is less than […]

# Once again, hello world

Hello everyone and welcome back to my side of the internet. I have been gone for a considerable amount of time, and I think I am ready to start this blogging thing for real now. Today, I have just changed my website hosting to hostpresto; let’s see if they are as good as the reviews […]
