A First Stab at Evolution

I had two goals in reimplementing Hillis' minimal sorting networks experiment: to start carving a generalised framework for evolutionary experiments and to try and improve on my previous attempts from university to find optimal sorting networks. While it would be all well and good* to sit down and try to construct a detailed design for an evolutionary … Continue reading A First Stab at Evolution

Minimal Sorting Networks

Back in 2000 I went back to university. A friend of mine who was just about to start his PhD at Sussex Uni told me about a master's degree called Evolutionary and Adaptive Systems. The courses sounded like all the bits of my degree that I'd enjoyed the most (evolution, simulated robotics, neural networks) and none of … Continue reading Minimal Sorting Networks
