چکیده:

This paper proposes a novel method for blindly separating unobservable independent component signals based on the use of a bee colony optimization algorithm (BCO). It is intended for itsapplication to the problem of blind source separation (BSS) on linear instantaneous mixtures. In this work, results obtained by BCOalgorithm for solving BSS problem based on a set of cost functions are compared. These cost functions based on the fusion of twoimportant paradigms, higher order statistics and information theory are established to measure the statistical dependence of the outputs ofthe demixing system. This paper demonstrates the possible benefits offered by BCO in combination with BSS, such as robustness againstlocal minima and a high degree of flexibility in the evaluation function. Results show that the performance of the BCO is better than or similar to other evolutionary algorithms such as particle swarm optimization (PSO) with applying mutual information in combination with kurtosis on its own cost function
