Food is an essential component of our lives, health and well-being, not to mention one of the most important sectors of industry, dealing with the chemical, agriculture, animal feed, food processing, trade, retail and consumer sectors. Providing an adequate food supply to a growing world population is one of the grand challenges facing our global society.
In these conditions, robust optimization methods are crucial for reaching breakthrough innovations and sustainable solutions. There is a huge opportunity for evolutionary computation, in particular for developing efficient integrative models and decision support tools, to address the aforementioned challenges.
This book addresses some questions related to optimization in the specific domain of food science, showing how evolutionary computation tools pave the way for new solutions, because of their versatility and robustness, and by offering new ways to better integrate the “human factor”.


1. Introduction.
2. A Brief Introduction to Evolutionary Algorithms.
3. Model Analysis and Visualization.
4. Interactive Model Learning.
5. Modeling Human Expertise Using Genetic Programming.
