An Experimental Study in Adaptive Kernel Selection for Bayesian Optimization
(IEEE Access, 2019)Bayesian Optimization has been widely used along with Gaussian Processes for solving expensivetoevaluate blackbox optimization problems. Overall, this approach has shown good results, and particularly for parameter ... 
Hybrid Heuristics for the Linear Ordering Problem
(2019 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation, CEC 2019  Proceedings, 2019)The linear ordering problem (LOP) is one of the classical NPHard combinatorial optimization problems. Motivated by the difficulty of solving it up to optimality, in recent decades a great number of heuristic and metaheuristic ... 
Soft information for localizationofthings
(Proceeding of the IEEE, 20191101)Location awareness is vital for emerging Internetof Things applications and opens a new era for Localizationof Things. This paper first reviews the classical localization techniques based on singlevalue metrics, such ... 
Data generation approaches for topic classification in multilingual spoken dialog systems
(ACM International Conference Proceeding Series, 2019)The conception of spokendialog systems (SDS) usually faces the problem of extending or adapting the system to multiple languages. This implies the creation of modules specically for the new languages, which is a time ... 
Anatomy of the attraction basins: Breaking with the intuition
(Evolutionary Computation, 2019)olving combinatorial optimization problems efficiently requires the development of algorithms that consider the specific properties of the problems. In this sense, local search algorithms are designed over a neighborhood ... 
Characterising the rankings produced by combinatorial optimisation problems and finding their intersections
(GECCO '19 Proceedings of the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference, 2019)The aim of this paper is to introduce the concept of intersection between combinatorial optimisation problems. We take into account that most algorithms, in their machinery, do not consider the exact objective function ... 
Approaching the Quadratic Assignment Problem with Kernels of Mallows Models under the Hamming Distance
(Proceedings of the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference Companion, 201907)The Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP) is a specially challenging permutationbased nphard combinatorial optimization problem, since instances of size $n>40$ are seldom solved using exact methods. In this sense, many ... 
Sentiment analysis with genetically evolved Gaussian kernels
(GECCO '19 Proceedings of the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference, 2019)Sentiment analysis consists of evaluating opinions or statements based on text analysis. Among the methods used to estimate the degree to which a text expresses a certain sentiment are those based on Gaussian Processes. ... 
Optimal multiimpulse space rendezvous considering limited impulse using a discretized Lambert problem combined with evolutionary algorithms
(8th European Conference for Aeronautics and Space Sciences, 20190701)In this paper, a direct approach is presented to tackle the multiimpulse rendezvous problem considering the impulse limit. Particularly, the standard Lambert problem is extended toward several consequential orbit transfers ... 
An evolutionary discretized Lambert approach for optimal longrange rendezvous considering impulse limit
(Aerospace Science and Technology, 20190918)In this paper, an approach is presented for finding the optimal longrange space rendezvous in terms of fuel and time, considering limited impulse. In this approach , the Lambert problem is expanded towards a discretized ...
