Figure 10: Pseudo-code of Meta-Evolutionary Ensembles (MEE) algorithm.
Figure 11: Graphical depiction of energy allocation in the MEE. Individual classifiers (small boxes in the environment) receive energy by correctly classifying test points. Energy for each ensemble is replenished between generations based on the accuracy of the ensemble. Ensembles with higher accuracy have their energy bins replenished with more energy per classifier, as indicated by the varying widths of the bins.
