Optimization techniques, particularly meta-heuristic algorithms, are highly effective in optimizing and enhancing efficiency across diverse models and systems, renowned for their ability to attain optimal or near-optimal solutions within a reasonable timeframe. In this work, the Puma Optimizer (PO) is proposed as a new optimization algorithm inspired from the intelligence and life of Pumas in. In this algorithm, unique and powerful mechanisms have been proposed in each phase of exploration and exploitation, which has increased the algorithm's performance against all kinds of optimization problems. In addition, a new type of intelligent mechanism, which is a type of hyper-heuristic for phase change, is presented (PI). Using this mechanism, the PO algorithm can perform a phase change operation during the optimization operation and balance both phases. Each phase is automatically adjusted to the nature of the problem. To evaluate the proposed algorithm, 23 standard functions and CEC2019 functions were used and compared with different types of optimization algorithms. Moreover, using the statistical test T-test and the execution time to solve the problem have been discussed. Finally, it has been tested using four machine learning and data mining problems, and the results obtained from all the analysis signifies the excellent performance of this algorithm against all kinds of problems compared to other optimizers. This algorithm has performed better than the compared algorithms in 27 benchmarks out of 33 benchmarks and has obtained better results in solving the clustering problem in 7 data sets out of 10 data sets. Furthermore, the results obtained in the problems of community detection and feature selection and MLP were superior.
