%X Bat Algorithm（BA） is a novel swarm intelligence optimization algorithm inspired by bats using ultrasonic echolocation foraging behavior. The paper introduces the basic principles of the bat algorithm, analyzes the performance influencing factors, discusses the improvement strategy of BA, and expounds the application and development of the bat algorithm in data mining, image processing, combinatorial optimization, etc. Finally, the future research direction of bat algorithm is prospected by combining the performance characteristics and application directions of the bat algorithm.
