报告题目：New Research Directions in Evolutionary Multi-Objective Optimization
报告摘要：In the field of evolutionary multi-objective optimization (EMO), various EMO algorithms have been proposed in the last three decades under the following widely-accepted implicit assumption: The final population is presented to the decision maker. Thus, the goal of EMO algorithm design is to find a good final population, and the performance of EMO algorithms is evaluated using the final population. Recently, two different directions have been actively studied. One is the use of an unbounded external archive, and the other is the Pareto front (or Pareto set) modelling. In the first direction, all the examined solutions are stored in the archive. Then, an arbitrary number of solutions can be selected from the archive for the decision maker. In the second direction, the Pareto front (or Pareto set) is modelled by a machine learning technique using examined solutions. Then, an arbitrary number of final solutions can be obtained from the model for the decision maker. These two approaches are much more flexible than the traditional EMO algorithm framework since an arbitrary number of solutions can be presented to the decision maker, which may increase the practical usefulness of EMO-based decision making. In this talk, first I will explain the traditional EMO framework and the two new directions (the use of unbounded external archive, and the modelling of the Pareto front/set). Then, I will discuss some interesting research challenges related to the two new directions such as subset selection from large candidate sets for multi-modal multi-objective optimization, use of examined solutions for generating new solutions, and the inverse mapping from the m-dimensional objective space to the n-dimensional decision space where n >> m.
