Abstract: Swarm intelligent optimisation algorithms have been researched widely in recent years. Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) algorithm is a kind of swarm intelligent algorithm with briefness and efficiency for global optimisation problems. This paper focuses on the performance of ABC algorithm on the large-scale global optimisation problems. The algorithm has been tested on 12 benchmark functions from relevant literature. The experiment results of ABC algorithm on the large-scale global optimisation problems have been shown in this paper. The experiment results indicated that as the dimensions of the test functions increase, the performance of ABC on most test problems deteriorates gradually.

 

Keywords: artificial bee colony; ABC; performance evaluation; large-scale global optimisation; numerical optimisation; swarm intelligence.
