Recently, Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology has been applied to many applications. As an extension of Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Genetic Programming (GP), Genetic Network Programming (GNP) has been proposed, whose gene is constructed by directed graphs. GNP can perform a global searching, but its evolving speed is not so high and its optimal solution is hard to obtain in some cases because of the lack of the exploitation ability of it. To alleviate this difficulty, we developed a hybrid algorithm that combines Genetic Network Programming (GNP) with Ant Colony Optimization (ACO). Our goal is to introduce more exploitation mechanism into GNP. In this paper, we applied the proposed hybrid algorithm to a complicated real world problem, that is, Elevator Group Supervisory Control System (EGSCS). The simulation results showed the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
