Abstract

Conventional optimization methodologies may be hindered when the automated search is stuck into local optima because of a deceptive objective function landscape. Consequently, open ended search methodologies, such as novelty search, have been proposed to tackle this issue. Overlooking the objective, while putting pressure into discovering novel solutions may lead to better solutions in practical problems. Novelty search was employed here to optimize the simulated design of a targeted drug delivery system for tumor treatment under the PhysiCell simulator. A hybrid objective equation was used containing both the actual objective of an effective tumor treatment and the novelty measure of the possible solutions. Different weights of the two components of the hybrid equation were investigated to unveil the significance of each one.
