The Importance of COVID-19 Vaccinations

By R. M. Seaa Shyin Vibi While the rapid development of vaccines against COVID‑19 is an extraordinary achievement, successfully vaccinating the global population presents many challenges, from production to distribution, deployment, and importantly, acceptance. Trust in the vaccines is vital, and is critically dependant on the ability of governments to communicate the benefits of vaccination, […]

Dual Kidney-Inspired Algorithm (Dual-KA) for Water Quality Prediction and Cancer Detection

1. Introduction The Kidney-inspired Algorithm (KA) imitates the physiological process of the kidneys in the human body. The second kidney in the human body filters all the solutes if the other kidney fails. If the second kidney also gets damaged, dialysis can be performed as a treatment. The failure of a kidney is proved by […]

Mayfly Optimization Algorithm (MA): A population-based approach used for the Application of flow-shop scheduling problem

1. Introduction Mayflies are insects that belong to the order Ephemeroptera, which is part of an ancient group of insects called Palaeoptera. It is estimated that there are over 3000 species of mayflies worldwide. Their name derives from the fact that they appear mainly during May in the UK [1]. The Mayfly optimation algorithm (MA) […]

Political Optimizer (PO): Inspired by the Multi-Phased Political Process Efficiently Solving Classical Engineering Problems

1. Introduction Politics in different contexts holds different meanings. In political optimizer algorithm PO, we use the political system of a country as a reference point and mimic the behavior of politicians to achieve the end goal of optimization [1]. Politics is about the governance of a region, state or country. The party-based political systems […]

Chaos Game Optimization (CGO): Useful for the Application of Fractal Theory such as Classification and Identification

1. Introduction Game is a competitive activity involving skill, chance, or endurance on the part of two or more persons who play according to a set of rules, usually for their own amusement or for that of spectators Most of the design problems in the nature can be considered as optimization problems which request some […]

Inspired by Plants Survival An New Optimization is presented: Fertile Field Algorithm for Continuous Nonlinear Optimization Problems

1. Introduction Nature, as a rich source of solutions, can be an inspirational guide to answer scientific expectations [1]. Seed dispersal mechanism as one of the most common reproduction [2] method among the plants is a unique technique with millions of years of evolutionary history [3]. Inspired by plants survival, a novel method of optimization […]

Rain optimization algorithm (ROA): Inspired by the Raindrop’s behaviour used for the Application of Forecasting Rainfall using Machine Learning Strategies

1. Introduction A new optimization algorithm called Rain optimization Algorithm (ROA) [1] is validated by applying on computationally expensive benchmark problems [2]. ROA mimics the natural behavior of raindrops trickling down a hill (high position) towards a valley (low position) [3]. 2. Inspiration of ROA The main inspiration of ROA is from raindrop behavior [4]. Raindrops naturally trickle down along […]

Sandpiper Optimization Algorithm (SOA): A New Approach to Solve Challenging Real- Life Problems

1. Introduction In different real-world problems there is a need to minimize production cost, risks, and maximize reliability etc [1]. Optimization is the process of determining the best value for a decision variable of a function so as to minimize or maximize an objective function [2]. The objective of the optimization process is to determine […]

Vapour – Liquid Equilibrium (VLE): An Algorithm Inspired by the Chemical Phenomenon for Solving a New Patient Bed Assignment Problem

1. Introduction In Chemistry, the vapor-liquid equilibrium process describes the distribution of chemical species combining two essential phases [1]: vapor phase and liquid phase. Using a binary system of compounds is possible to simulate a search process based on the equilibrium between both phases [2]. Understanding the distribution of chemical components in both the vapor and liquid phase, called vapor-liquid […]

Border Collie Optimization (BOC): Algorithm mimicking the Sheep Herding Styles of Border Collie Dogs used for Solving Real World Optimization Problem

1. Introduction The Border collie is often considered to be the brightest dog from other breeds that are considered to have higher cognitive skill levels [1]. It is known that dogs, like people, have different levels of intelligence [2]. Intelligence is determined by the ability of the dog to learn, which generally means the ability […]
