CTW3 Chalk Talk: Particle Swarm Optimization


1:15pm - 2:15pm

James McCaffrey

Research Software Engineer, Microsoft Research


In this short and informal presentation, Dr. James McCaffrey from Microsoft Research will explain particle swarm optimization (PSO), a fascinating technique modeled on group behavior such as schools of fish and flocks of birds. You'll see a quick demonstration written in C# and leave knowing exactly what PSO is, what types of problems PSO solves, and how PSO relates to other techniques such as genetic algorithms.
