If Darwin Had Been a Programmer -- Evolutionary Design by Computers
Dr. Christian Jacob, University of Calgary
Nature offers an amazing, yet largely unexplored, repertoire of approaches to build complex and elaborate systems. Instead of composing its entities from pre-fabricated parts, nature uses alternative approaches to explore design solutions for the creation of its organisms as, e.g., structure formation, growth, self-assembly, self-organization, emergence, and evolution. This presentation will illustrate how to 'breed' computer programs and how to utilize evolutionary techniques for emergent computation through 'swarm intelligence' systems.
