Within the framework of the OEAD programme "Scientific and Technical Cooperation" (STC), the project "Collective Evolutionary Strategies for Distributed Learning on Non-Euclidean Data" intends to establish joint research activities between the Research Centre Business Informatics of the University of Applied Sciences Vorarlberg and the Department of Mathematics of the University of Montenegro.
Over the two-year period, the project teams will work out joint research questions in several bilateral workshops. The focus will be on the following topics:
- Evolutionary Algorithms
- Self-organising complex physical systems
In order to combine these topics, problems with non-euclidean geometry will be considered in particular. Applications of such problems are for example:
- in simultaneous communication between actors
- in shape optimisation for the purpose of image recognition/computer graphics
- in designing neural networks for dynamic problems
Besides the development of new methods, the collaboration will be used to prepare further joint research projects.
