  • Slide 3 - Outline Introduction (Swarm intelligence) Natural behavior of ants First Algorithm: Ant System Improvements to Ant System Applications
  • Slide 4 - Swarm Intelligence Collective system capable of accomplishing difficult tasks in dynamic and varied environments without any external guidance or control and with no central coordination Achieving a collective performance which could not normally be achieved by an individual acting alone Constituting a natural model particularly suited to distributed problem solving

  • Slide 9 - Inherent features Inherent parallelism Stochastic nature Adaptivity Use of positive feedback Autocatalytic in nature
  • Slide 10 - Natural behavior of an ant Foraging modes Wander mode Search mode Return mode Attracted mode Trace mode Carry mode
  • Slide 11 - Natural behavior of ant Ant Algorithms – (P.Koumoutsakos – based on notes L. Gamberdella (www.idsia.ch)
  • Slide 12 - How to implement in a program Ants: Simple computer agents Move ant: Pick next component in the construction of solution Trace: Pheromone, , a global type of information Memory: MK or TabuK Next move: Use probability to move ant
  • Slide 13 - ACO for the Traveling Salesman Problem The TSP is a very important problem in the context of Ant Colony Optimization because it is the problem to which the original AS was first applied, and it has later often been used as a benchmark to test a new idea and algorithmic variants. It is a metaphor problem for the ant colony It is one of the most studied NP-hard problems in the combinatorial optimization it is very easily to explain. So that the algorithm behavior is not obscured by too many technicalities.
  • Slide 14 - Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) for TSP Graph (N,E): where N = cities(nodes), E = edges = the tour cost from city i to city j (edge weight) Ant move from one city i to the next j with some transition probability.
  • Slide 15 - Each edge is associated a static value based on the edge-cost (r,s) = 1/dr,s. Each edge of the graph is augmented with a trace (r,s) deposited by ants. Initially, 0. Trace is dynamic and it is learned at run-time Each ant tries to produce a complete tour, using the probability depending on (r,s) and (r,s) to choose the next city. Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) for TSP
  • Slide 16 - ACO Algorithm for TSP Initialize Place each ant in a randomly chosen city Choose NextCity(For Each Ant) more cities to visit For Each Ant Return to the initial cities Update trace level using the tour cost for each ant Print Best tour yes No Stopping criteria yes No
  • Slide 17 - A simple TSP example A E D C B dAB =100;dBC = 60…;dDE =150
  • Slide 18 - Iteration 1 A E D C B
  • Slide 19 - How to choose next city? A E D C B
  • Slide 20 - Iteration 2 A E D C B
  • Slide 21 - Iteration 3 A E D C B
  • Slide 22 - Iteration 4 A E D C B
  • Slide 23 - Iteration 5 A E D C B
  • Slide 24 - Path and Trace Update L1 =300 L2 =450 L3 =260 L4 =280 L5 =420
  • Slide 25 - End of First Run All ants die New ants are born Save Best Tour (Sequence and length)
  • Slide 26 - Ant System (Ant Cycle) Dorigo [1] 1991 t = 0; NC = 0; τij(t)=c for ∆τij=0 Place the m ants on the n nodes Update tabuk(s) Compute the length Lk of every ant Update the shortest tour found = For every edge (i,j) Compute For k:=1 to m do Initialize Choose the city j to move to. Use probability Tabu list management Move k-th ant to town j. Insert town j in tabuk(s) Set t = t + n; NC=NC+1; ∆τij=0 NC
  • Slide 27 - Stopping Criteria Stagnation Max Iterations
  • Slide 28 - ACO : Ant Colony Optimization for TSP
  • Slide 29 - • Algorithm found best solutions on small problems (75 city) • On larger problems converged to good solutions – but not the best • On “static” problems like TSP hard to beat specialist algorithms • Ants are “dynamic” optimizers – should we even expect good performance on static problems • Coupling ant with local optimizers gave world class results…. Performance
  • Slide 30 - Parameters of ACO Taken from Dorigo [1] Comparison among three strategies, averages over 10 trials. Other parameters: Q, constant for trace updates, and m, the number of ants
  • Slide 31 - Pheromone trail and heuristic function: are they useful? Comparison between ACS standard, ACS with no heuristic (i.e., we set B=0), and ACS in which ants neither sense nor deposit pheromone. Problem: Oliver30. Averaged over 30 trials, 10,000/m iterations per trial.
  • Slide 32 - General ACO A stochastic construction procedure Probabilistically build a solution Iteratively adding solution components to partial solutions - Heuristic information - Trace/Pheromone trail Reinforcement Learning reminiscence Modify the problem representation at each iteration
  • Slide 33 - General ACO Ants work concurrently and independently Collective interaction via indirect communication leads to good solutions
  • Slide 34 - Some inherent advantages Positive Feedback accounts for rapid discovery of good solutions Distributed computation avoids premature convergence The greedy heuristic helps find acceptable solution in the early solution in the early stages of the search process. The collective interaction of a population of agents.
  • Slide 35 - Disadvantages in Ant Systems Slower convergence than other Heuristics Performed poorly for TSP problems larger than 75 cities. No centralized processor to guide the AS towards good solutions
  • Slide 36 - Applications Traveling Salesman Problem Quadratic Assignment Problem Network Model Problem Vehicle routing
  • Slide 37 - Conclusion ACO is a relatively new metaheuristic approach for solving hard combinatorial optimization problems. Artificial ants implement a randomized construction heuristic which makes probabilistic decisions. The cumulated search experience is taken into account by the adaptation of the pheromone trail. ACO shows great performance with the “ill-structured” problems like network routing. In ACO local search is important to obtain good results.
