Abstract: In recent years, swarm intelligence has proven its importance for the solution of those problems that cannot be easily dealt with classical mathematical techniques. The foraging behaviour of honey bees produces an intelligent social behaviour and falls in the category of swarm intelligence. Artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm is a simulation of honey bee foraging behaviour, established by Karaboga in 2005. Since its inception, a lot of research has been carried out to make ABC more efficient and to apply it on different types of problems. This paper presents a review on ABC developments, applications, comparative performance and future research perspectives.
