HeuristicLab 3.3.6 Released

Jan 03, 2012

Happy new year! The HeuristicLab development team kicks off 2012 with the brand new HeuristicLab 3.3.6 release. One of the most exciting new features of HeuristicLab 3.3.6 is HeuristicLab Hive which provides an infrastructure for parallel and distributed computation. Hive consists of a server with a database and a number of computation slaves. A user can upload a job to the Hive server which distributes the jobs among the available slaves and automatically retrieves the results after they are finished. While the main purpose of HeuristicLab Hive is to execute HeuristicLab algorithms, it can also be used independently.

Additional new features in HeuristicLab 3.3.6 include:

  • Robust Taboo Search for the Quadratic Assignment Problem
  • New Standard Algorithms for Regression and Classification (kNN, Neural Networks, Multi-Nominal Logit Regression)
  • Genetic Programming Grammar Editor
  • New Standard Tree-Creation Operators for Genetic Programming (Grow, Full, Ramped Half-Half)
  • Combination and Transformation of Algorithm Results
  • Customizable Charts
  • Performance Benchmarks etc.
