Abstract: This paper presents a brief survey on various optimization algorithms. To be more precise, the paper elaborates on clever Algorithms, a class of Nature inspired Algorithms. The Nature Inspired Computing (NIC) is an emerging area of research that focuses on Physics and Biology Based approach to the Algorithms for optimization. The Algorithms briefed in this paper have understood, explained, adapted and replicated the phenomena of Nature to replicate them in the artificial systems. This Cross - fertilization of Nature Inspired Computing (NIC) and Computational Intelligence (CI) will definitely provide optimal solutions to existing problems and also open up new arenas in Research and Development. This paper briefs the classification of clever algorithms and the key strategies employed for optimization.
