When developing software and/or hardware, optimization problems often arise. Finding the best solution to the problems is usually very time consuming, so we just find a solution that is good enough and go with that. But we might have a feeling that we could have done better. Metaheuristics might be a helpful tool in these kind of problems. Using metaheuristics, no problem modeling is necessary, which saves development time. The talk will focus on genetic algorithms and simulated anealing, two of the most
widely used metaheuristics.
