## Comment: Research on Ant Colony Optimization (Score -1, Redundant) 108

My MS thesis was right up this alley; titled "Automated Radio Network Design Using Ant Colony Optimization"

We represented the network design problem as a GSTS (generalized Steiner tree-star) problem, and programmatically let thousands of ants traverse the network looking for optimal designs.

Here's the final thesis paper, a conference poster, and thesis defense presentation for anyone interested:
