Meta-heuristic algorithms have been very popular in recent years and are frequently used to solve optimization problems. There are many bio-inspired algorithms, such as: PSO (Particle Swarm Optimization), ABC (Artificial Bee Colony), ACO (Ant Colony Optimization), GA (Genetic Algorithm), and GSA (Gravitational Search Algorithm).
