Incorporating inference into evolutionary algorithms for Max-CSP

Artificial Intelligence

This paper presents a simple way of combining inference with stochastic search for solving constraint satisfaction problems. The approach makes use of an evolutionary algorithm for search assisted by an inference algorithm, the variable elimination procedure. The hybrid algorithm obtained is adapted in such way that a balance between exploitation and exploration is preserved. The results are presented for the Max-CSP optimization task.
