A novel heuristic search algorithm called seeker optimization algorithm (SOA) is proposed for the real-parameter optimization. The proposed SOA is based on simulating the act of human searching. In the SOA, search direction is based on empirical gradients by evaluating the response to the position changes, while step length is based on uncertainty reasoning by using a simple fuzzy rule. The effectiveness of the SOA is evaluated by using a challenging set of typically complex functions in comparison to differential evolution (DE) and three modified particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithms. The simulation results show that the performance of the SOA is superior or comparable to that of the other algorithms.
