This book describes the theory, methodology and algorithmization of a new approach to problem solving and its realization in intelligent systems. It investigates cognitive reasoning at three levels of abstraction: conceptual, formal, and realizational.
This book introduces a multipath routing algorithm for packet-switched telecommunication networks based on techniques observed in bee colonies. The algorithm, BeeHive, represents an important step towards intelligent networks that optimally manage resources.
Autonomous combinatorial search (AS) represents a new field in combinatorial problem solving. Its major standpoint and originality is that it considers that problem solvers must be capable of self-improvement operations. This is the first book dedicated to AS.
