In this paper, we implement a Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) based method for solving the kidney exchange problem. Because using a kidney exchange, we can help incompatible patient-donor couples to swap donors to receive a compatible kidney. Implementing Particle Swarm Optimization in solving the kidney exchange problem is an effective method because the obtained results indicate that PSO outperforms other stochastic-based methods such as Genetic Algorithm regarding the efficient the number of resulting exchanges.
