  • Software Effort Estimation: An Approach Using Grammatical Evolution

    A project developed as part of my master's thesis. It's an evolutionary algorithm (EA) called Grammatical Evolution (GE) that has inspiration on the creation of proteins as well as the natural selection. EA is a subfield of machine learning/computational intelligence. This algorithm was used to optimize the prediction of software effort estimation. The GE algorithm generates executable programs in any language, in this case, in Python. It used a well-known dataset called ISBSG to train and validate the model. Before running the algorithm, this dataset was cleaned by removing outliers and other statistical tests. This process was done using R.
