I am currently studying on how to create an objective function that
can cluster matrices...I would like to know how do we start to
construct an objective function from scratch?
Designing a fitness, it's like cooking. Some
* Let's says you want to maximize an unique
* Trivia : If you have two individuals A and B with
A is better than B, fitness(A) > fitness(B)
* A cliff-like fitness landscape is not good, smooth
slopes are good.
* Try severals ideas ;)
* When trying your fitness measures, you must
carefully the best individuals. Sometimes, non valid
are found due to a bad defined fitness. As instance,
when evolving robots controlers, the evolution could
find the teleportation technology, by tweaking a not
carefully designed robot simulator.
