Topic: Evolutionary Multi-Objective Optimization: Basic Ideas and Recent Hot Topics

Speaker: Liemeng Pang, Research Associate, Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), China


Multi-objective optimization problems are commonly found in many real-world applications. These problems involve the simultaneous optimization of multiple conflicting objective functions. Consequently, they do not yield a single optimal solution but rather a set of trade-off solutions. The trade-off solutions are often defined using the Pareto dominance relation and are known as Pareto optimal solutions. When mapped to the objective space, they form the Pareto front. Evolutionary Multi-Objective Optimization (EMO) algorithms have been a popular approach for solving multi-objective optimization problems. Thanks to their population-based search nature, EMO algorithms can obtain a set of nondominated solutions in a single run, which is then used to approximate the Pareto front. This talk will give a comprehensive introduction on the fundamental concepts of evolutionary multi-objective optimization including commonly used strategies in designing EMO algorithms. Additionally, the talk will also cover some recent hot topics and advancements in the field of evolutionary multi-objective optimization.
