Bio-inspired Algorithms, The Natural Evolution Based Optimization

The Professional Master’s Degree Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Engineering of TECH trains experts in the functioning of the types of social adaptation algorithms and genetic algorithms.

The term optimization is becoming more common; however, many people do not know what it is. Specifically, an optimization problem refers to a problem that tries to find the best solution that meets certain constraints from all workable solutions, and in many cases, can be difficult to solve with traditional techniques. The Professional Master’s Degree Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Engineering introduces in its teaching program algorithms inspired by the workings of nature, which replicate the way nature deals with this situation.

These methods are known as bio-inspired algorithms and attempt to mimic the natural evolution of species and the response of social systems to the challenges they face. These include the family of evolutionary algorithms and genetic algorithms, which are based on the evolution of species and chromosomes. Also, are characterized by being non-deterministic, having a parallel structure, and are adaptive, thus, the following parts can be found:

  • Population: It is a set of candidates for the solution.
  • Evolutionary Mechanism: It corresponds to methods by which the population is changing.
  • Rating Mechanism: Methods by which a value is assigned to each element of the population (solution) and the function to be optimized is normally used to assign the ratings.
  • Stopping Conditions: Procedure that controls whether a solution has been found or a previously determined number of operations have been reached.

Bio-inspired algorithms encompass a wide range of algorithms that include some computational models, such as evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence, immunological algorithms, and neural networks. All of these can be grouped under a general term called “computational intelligence,” which is a subfield of artificial intelligence.

Professional Master’s Degree Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Engineering  

TECH Technological University created this program with the aim of introducing engineers to the world of artificial intelligence and knowledge engineering as it has reached different applications related to the automation of procedures in companies, therefore, it was designed to train professionals who can handle complex situations and techniques. In this way, is easy to boost the CV and find better job growth opportunities.

One of the advantages that the institution offer is the possibility to learn 100% online and with access to the lessons at any time or device since it does not have a mandatory schedule for taking the classes. Also, the students will learn in hand of real cases, graphic and schematic content, theoretical lessons, discussion forums, teaching support, autonomous learning, practical exercises, support groups and added databases.

The contents of this master’s degree have been created by different experts in this field to ensure the highest quality and the skills needed in the profession. On each module the topics related to programming fundamentals, artificial intelligence, knowledge engineering, intelligent systems, data structures, machine learning, data mining, algorithm and complexity, clustering, multiagent systems, computational perception, among others.

Re-Learning method

The Professional Master’s Degree Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Engineering of TECH is developed entirely online. During the 12 months of training, the student has access to the program’s contents at any time and from any device, allowing them to self-manage the study time with maximum flexibility and adapt to each student’s schedule.

It has its own learning method, ‘Re-Learning’, based on asynchrony and self-management. The contents are presented in an attractive and dynamic way in multimedia capsules that include audio, videos, images, diagrams, and conceptual maps to corroborate knowledge.

TECH Technological University

TECH Technological University, the world’s largest university, is also the official online university of the NBA (National Basketball Association) in Latin America. It belongs to the TECH educational group, a Spanish-owned multinational recognized by the Financial Times as one of the 200 fastest-growing companies in Europe. The company, founded and directed by Manuel Sánchez-Cascado de Fuentes, has also been considered the most highly valued Spanish technology company in the last 15 years.

Thanks to its fully digital learning system, it supplies training to students from anywhere in the world. An international trajectory has allowed it to become a benchmark in distance learning, with a catalogue of over 10,000 programs, over 100,000 new students each year, and 500,000 graduates from over 150 countries.

Specialized highly qualified postgraduate programs, they offer their students the best training programs at an international level, being leaders in employability with 99% of their students working in the first twelve months, according to data from the consulting firm KPMG.
