You know about evolution in the natural world. Did you know the same principles can be applied to software?
Genetic algorithms have been used to solve tough problems - often finding novel optimizations that no human would have considered. NASA launched a tiny antenna evolved by a genetic algorithm that was orders of magnitude smaller than conventional antennas. Genetic algorithms have been used to teach robots to learn to walk.
This session will be a very gentle introduction to the fascinating fields of genetic algorithms and genetic programming.
