The canonical particle swarm algorithm is a new approach to optimization, drawing inspiration from group behavior and the establishment of social norms. It is gaining popularity, especially because of the speed of convergence and the fact that it is easy to use. However, we feel that each individual is not simply influenced by the best performer among his neighbors. We, thus, decided to make the individuals "fully informed." The results are very promising, as informed individuals seem to find better solutions in all the benchmark functions.
