Genetic Algorithms are an effective way to solve optimisation problems. If the fitness test takes a long time to perform then the Genetic Algorithm may take a long time to execute. Using conventional fitness functions Approximately a third of the time may be spent testing individuals that have already been tested. Intelligent Fitness Functions can be applied to improve the efficiency of the Genetic Algorithm by reducing repeated tests. Three types of Intelligent Fitness Functions are introduced and compared against a standard fitness function The Intelligent Fitness Functions are shown to be more efficient.
