Abstract: Multi-objective optimization is widely found in many fields, such as logistics, economics, engineering, bioinformatics, finance, or any problems whenever two or more conflicting objectives need to be optimized simultaneously. The synergy of probabilistic graphical approaches in evolutionary computation, commonly known as estimation of distribution algorithms (EDA), may enhance the iterative search process when interrelationships of the archived data has been learnt, modeled, and used in the reproduction. The primary aim of this thesis is to develop a novel neural-based EDA in the context of multi-objective optimization and to implement the algorithm to solve problems with vastly different characteristics and representation schemes. The modeling and sampling issues pertaining to the neural-based EDA will be highlighted. Subsequently, the research directed to study the optimization performance of the neural-based EDA in solving scalable, many-objective, epistatic, noisy, and permutation-based multi-objective optimization problems.
