An Algorithmic and Social Introduction to Computer Science (CSC-105 2000S)

Class 38: Genetic Algorithms

Back to Neural Networks. On to AI Experiments.

Held Tuesday, April 11, 2000


Today we investigate techniques of genetic programming and consider whether any of these techniques may be applicable to the problems of artificial intelligence.

Question 38 for discussion today: How might you use genetic algorithms to produce a form of intelligent program? Do you expect this to be a fruitful road to AI?

Question 39 for discussion tomorrow: Find a Web site with an illustrative example of genetic programming or neural networks. Report on the success or failure of the technique to solve the problem described therein.
