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.
