Speaker: Johannes Lengler
The theory of optimization heuristics like evolutionary algorithms looks rather different from other TCS areas. In this talk, I will give a general overview on how theory in this field looks like, and why I believe it makes sense to do this kind of research. I will give some examples in which theoretical analysis has given us insights into search heuristics that we probably couldn't have found otherwise.
This talk is based on an invited talk at the COSEAL 2019 conference. COSEAL (workshop on configuration and selection of algorithms) is an applied conference that was co-located with FOGA (foundations of genetic algorithms), a theory conference. So I was asked to give a talk that explains to non-theoreticians why we do theory, and what we can gain from it.
