- Optimization is a very common problem both in theoretical and practical scenes. However, at the same time, it is also been classified as a NP-hard problem in most cases, complex and hardware resource consuming. In order to evaluate the optimal value in a limited time and with a limited computing resource, people often choose metaheuristic methods to search it. Cuckoo search is a newly proposed metaheuristic method, which is suggested very compromising in recent works. In this paper, we invent a novel approach to accommodate cuckoo search to the analysis of big data by using latest cloud computing technical, which is called MapReduce paradigm. During the implementation of our method, we use HADOOP platform as the backend MapReduce engine. At the last part, through a series of simulation experiments, we prove that our approach has a much better runtime performance when processing large dataset.
