Guest Speaker-----Dr. Dan Simon
Professor of Electrical Engineering
Cleveland State University

When confronted with engineering challenges, we often look to nature for inspiration. Solar power, flying robotic insects, prosthetics, and smart sensors and materials, are just a few examples of nature-inspired engineering systems. Nature also inspires us in our design of optimization algorithms.

Professor Simon recently developed a new optimization algorithm, called biogeography-based optimization (BBO), which is motivated by the migration behaviors of biological species. In this seminar we give an overview of natural biogeography, discuss its extension to the BBO algorithm, and show some examples of biomedical optimization applications.
