Evolutionary computation is used to find optimal solutions to multi-objective, large scale, complex optimization problems
Evolutionary computation simulates evolution and it is applied to solve a variety of design innovation and sustainability problems
Evolutionary computation uses computational models of natural evolution to solve complex problems in science and engineering. The creation of sustainable systems to meet our needs without compromising future generations is a social challenge. It demands the development of new technologies and the redesign of our infrastructure, balancing environmental, economic, and societal needs. Sustainability problems are intrinsically complex, dynamic, large-scale, span several disciplines, and require multidisciplinary efforts and methods to solve them. We use the power of evolutionary computation for design innovation and optimization of solutions to complex sustainability problems.
Evolutionary computation will play an important role in design innovation in key industries, such as automobile and space exploration. It will also be used to optimize the design of smart power grids, intelligent transportation and mobility, and smart water grids seeking to improve their sustainability.
In the Laboratory we learn about real-world problem-solving and optimization by computational means. This requires a clear understanding of the problem, its modeling, and the creation of a program to solve it. There is also opportunities to collaborate in joint research with industry. These activities complement the undergraduate education.
