Bio-inspired computing optimization algorithms is an emerging approach which is based on the principles and inspiration of the biological evolution of nature to develop new and robust competing techniques. Also, we explore some key issues in optimization and some applications for further research.

**What is biological algorithm?**

1. Computational algorithms which are motivated by biological mechanism. Learn more in: Particle Swarm Optimization Algorithm and its Hybrid Variants for Feature Subset Selection. Algorithms based on living beings’ behaviors to accomplish a task efficiently.

### What are nature inspired algorithms?

Nature-inspired algorithms are a set of novel problem-solving methodologies and approaches derived from natural processes. Some of the popular examples of nature-inspired optimization algorithms include: genetic algorithm, particle swarm optimization, cukcoo search algorithm, ant colony optimization and so on.

**What is bio-inspired learning?**

Bio-inspired computing, short for biologically inspired computing, is a field of study which seeks to solve computer science problems using models of biology. Within computer science, bio-inspired computing relates to artificial intelligence and machine learning.

#### What are genes in genetic algorithm?

An individual is characterized by a set of parameters (variables) known as Genes. Genes are joined into a string to form a Chromosome (solution). In a genetic algorithm, the set of genes of an individual is represented using a string, in terms of an alphabet. Usually, binary values are used (string of 1s and 0s).

**Which of the following comes under category of bio inspired optimization method?**

In this contribution, three recent bioinspired optimization methods, Bees Colony Algorithm, Firefly Colony Algorithm, and Fish Swarm Algorithm, are considered as optimization strategies.

## What can genetic algorithms be used for?

Genetic algorithms are commonly used to generate high-quality solutions to optimization and search problems by relying on biologically inspired operators such as mutation, crossover and selection.

**Where are evolutionary algorithms used?**

Evolutionary algorithms are typically used to provide good approximate solutions to problems that cannot be solved easily using other techniques. Many optimisation problems fall into this category. It may be too computationally-intensive to find an exact solution but sometimes a near-optimal solution is sufficient.

### Which of the following is an application area of nature inspired algorithm?

Nature-inspired algorithms have become powerful and popular for solving problems in optimization, computational intelligence, data mining, machine learning, transport and vehicle routing. The diversity of the applications of these nature-inspired optimization algorithms is vast and the literature is rapidly expanding.

**What is nature inspired?**

The term “nature-inspired” is associated with a sequence of efforts to understand, synthesize and imitate any natural object or phenomenon either in a tangible or intangible form, which allows us to obtain improved insights into nature.

#### What is the purpose of bio-inspired robots?

In biologically-inspired robotics, the primary goal is technological: Biologically-inspired roboticists wish to build better robots. They look to biology for inspiration because, compared to current robots, the behavior of animals is extremely flexible and robust in the face of environmental contingencies.

**What is bio-inspired optimization algorithm?**

In the last years, the bio-inspired optimization algorithms are recognized in machine learning to address the optimal solutions of complex problems in science and engineering.
