BioHEL: Bioinformatics-oriented Hierarchical Evolutionary Learning

By Jaume Bacardit and Natalio Krasnogor


This technical report briefly describes our recent work in the iterative rule learning approach (IRL) of evolutionary learning/genetics-based machine learning. This approach was initiated by the SIA system. A more recent example is HIDER. Our approach integrates some of the main characteristics of GAssist, a system belonging to the Pittsburgh approach of Evolutionary Learning, into the general framework of IRL. Our aims in developing this system are use all the good characteristics of GAssist but at the same time overcome some of the scalability limitations that it presents
