In computer science evolutionary computation is a subfield of artificial intelligence (more particularly computational intelligence) involving combinatorial optimization problems.

Whereas evolutionary algorithms generally only involve techniques implementing mechanisms such as reproduction, mutation, recombination, natural selection and survival of the fittest, evolutionary computation can be loosely recognised by the following criteria:

This mostly involves metaheuristic optimization algorithms such as:

and in a lesser extent also:

  • self-organization such as self-organizing maps, growing neural gas, competitive learning

  • differential evolution
  • artificial life (also see digital organism)
  • cultural algorithms
  • artificial immune systems
