Scaling eCGA Model Building via Data-Intensive Computing

I just uploaded the technical report of the paper we put together for CEC 2010 on how we can scale up eCGA using a MapReduce approach. The paper, besides exploring the Hadoop implementation, it also presents some very compelling results obtained with MongoDB (a document based store able to perform parallel MapReduce tasks via sharding).

Scaling Genetic Algorithms using MapReduce

Below you may find the abstract to and the link to the technical report of the paper entitled “Scaling Genetic Algorithms using MapReduce” that will be presented at the Ninth International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA) 2009 by Verma, A., Llorà, X., Campbell, R.H., Goldberg, D.E. next month. Abstract:Genetic algorithms(GAs) are increasingly […]
