Description

While every population of living organisms is evolving, not everything that evolves is alive. Nature's success at finding innovative solutions to complex problems has inspired many computational implementations of the evolutionary process. Some of the various implementations we will learn about with hands-on exercises include approaches for solving optimization problems, building controllers and/or bodies for robots, and using computational instances of Darwinian evolution to study fundamental questions in biology.
