                 populations are macro-organisms, which perceive their
                 environment as if filtered via a kernel. The kernel
                 assimilates each individual's sensory abilities so that
                 the collective moves using a greedy hill-climbing
                 strategy. This model is fitted to data collected in
                 real PSO and GA runs by using genetic programming to
                 evolve the kernel.

                 In nature animals tend to live within groups. The
                 social interactions effectively transform the fitness
                 selection landscape seen by an isolated individual. In
                 some cases a group behaves (or even can be said to
                 think) like a single organism. Kernels provide a lens
                 which coarse-grains or averages individual senses and
                 so may help explain joint actions and social

                 The original multi-modal problem is smoothed by
                 convolving it with a problem specific filter designed
                 by GP. Because populations see the transformed social
                 fitness landscape, they can pass over local optima. GP
                 can give a good fit between the predicted behaviour of
                 the macroscopic organism and the actual runs.",
