This is an introductory course to multi-objective optimization using Artificial Intelligence search algorithms. We start with the details and mathematical models of problems with multiple objectives. Then, we focus on understanding the most fundamental concepts in the field of multi-objective optimization including but not limited to: search space, objective space, Pareto optimality, Pareto optimal solution set, Pareto optimal front, Pareto dominance, constraints, objective function, local fronts, local solutions, true Pareto optimal solutions, true Pareto optimal front, etc.
In the second part of this course, several optimization methods will be given to solve multi-objective optimization problems as follows:
No preference methods
A priori methods
A posteriori methods
The course also includes a large number of coding videos to give you enough opportunity to practice the theory covered in the lecture. There are also several case studies including real-world problems that allow you to learn the process of solving challenging multi-objective optimization problems using multi-objective optimization algorithms.
For the search methods, we will be using stochastic optimization algorithms including Particle Swarm Optimization and Genetic Algorithms. This means that we develop Multi-Objective Particle Swarm Optimization (MOPSO) and multi-Objective Genetic Algorithms (MOGA).
