This work extends the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm for working on dynamic environments. We propose an evaporation mechanism to solve the outdated memory problem. We empirically show that our evaporation mechanism is able to achieve self-adaption without any knowledge on when changes occur.
