The Use of Genetic Algorithms in Mobile Applications

Plechawska-Wojcik Malgorzata


The goal of the paper is to present the application of genetic algorithm in practice. The main result is the mechanism based on genetic algorithm applied in the application dedicated to tourists. The goal of the mechanism is to propose the most effective route between points - tourist facilities. Those objects are also chosen automatically based on user’s interest as well as on his and his friends opinions expressed via social networking services Facebook. Genetic algorithm was implemented to obtain efficient way of solving the problem of matching the appropriate route regarding requirements concerning time and location. The results are obtained in short time by the genetic algorithm running on the web server. The paper presents also results of the application and mechanisms testing, including performance testing.
