Testing, Evaluation and Performance of Optimization and Learning Systems D. P. Watson, A. Howe, and L. Barbulescu Colorado State University, Fort Collins CO 80523, USA Abstract. Benchmarks and test suites are widely used to evaluate optimization and learning systems. The advantage is that these test problems provide an objective means of comparing systems. The potential disadvantage is that systems can become overlitted to work well on benchmarks and therefore that good performance on benchmarks does not generalize to real world problems.

The ES maintained a single individual, and tested mutants of it. If a mutation caused a reduction in fitness, it was rejected, otherwise it was accepted. This is simply a random-ascent hill climber allowing neutral moves, but has the essential ingredients of evolution. The experiment succeeded, and a robust asynchronous design was found that could not have resulted from normal design principles. Why did the simple mutation-driven ES not get stuck on a local optimum? Consider Figure 6. The circuits have been empirically pruned to show only the components and connections involved in generating their behaviour.

QIIiiI-. Fig. 3. Local optima distribution for a random (left figure) and a structured (right figure) PFSP instance. that cover both machine correlated and job correlated problems. But this again illustrates how there are biases, not only in the test problems that are used for evaluating algorithms, but also in commonly used lower bound calculations that are in some sense used to measure problem difficulty. ) Here again, commonly used benchmarks introduce an unexpected bias. 2 Differences in Search Space Topology Creating structured PFSPs enables experiments that explore changes in the search space topology and the performance of optimization algorithms as one transitions from random to structured problem instances.
