Prof. AP Engelbrecht
Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment and Information Technology
Prof. Engelbrecht’s main research focus is computational intelligence, with a particular interest in computational swarm intelligence, learning from zero knowledge using competitive coevolution, and evolutionary algorithms. His research team developed an open source library of computational intelligence algorithms, which is increasingly being used internationally. They were the first to provide convergence proofs of particle swarm optimisers (PSO), to develop PSO algorithms to find multiple solutions to optimisation problems and to use PSO for secondary RNA structure prediction.
