【專題演講】Search Based Approach to Forecasting QoS Attributes of Web Services using Genetic Programming


  • Search Based Approach to Forecasting QoS Attributes of Web Services using Genetic Programming


  • Currently, many service operations performed in service-oriented software engineering (SOSE), such as service composition and discovery, depend heavily on Quality of Service (QoS). Due to factors such as varying loads, the real value of some dynamic QoS attributes (e.g., response time and availability) changes over time. To predict dynamic QoS values, the objective is to devise an approach that can generate a predictor to perform QoS forecasting based on past QoS observations. We use a kind of search-based software engineering (SBSE) method called genetic programming (GP) to Forecasting QoS attributes of web services. In our proposed approach, GP is used to search and evolve expression-based, one-step-ahead QoS predictors. To evaluate the performance (accuracy) of our GP-based approach, we also implement most current time series forecasting methods; a comparison between our approach and these other methods is discussed in the context of real-world QoS data.
