A robust master-slave distribution architecture for evolutionary computations

By Christian Gagné, Marc Parizeau and Marc Dubreuil


This paper presents a new robust masterslave distribution architecture for multiple populations Evolutionary Computations (EC). It discusses the main advantages and drawbacks of master-slave models over island models for parallel and distributed EC. It also formulates a mathematical model of the master-slave distribution policies in order to show that, contrary to what is implied by current mainstream developments in island models, a well designed master-slave approach can be both robust and scalable (up to a certain point). Finally, it introduces some of the details of a new C++ framework named Distributed BEAGLE, which implements this architecture over the Open BEA-GLE EC framework.
