Abstract

Robustness is a key characteristic of genetic programming candidate solutions, providing the ability to maintain a satisfactory level of performance under dynamic and uncertain environments. In this paper we perform experiments on Tartarus problem instances[2] exploring the hypothesis that the introduction of a fitness distribution bias, inspired by the Dunning-Kruger effect [5], will lead to an increase in the diversity and robustness of candidate solutions.
