    The group deals with optimization problems which cannot be theoretically solved due to the lack of an analytical expression, the presence of noise, or other features which make the problem unsolvable by means of an exact method. Our research activity consists of designing optimization algorithms by means of computational intelligence techniques, such as evolutionary computation, neural networks, and machine learning. A large part of our activities can be summarized as Memetic Computing.
