Watch your computer design a 2 dimensional car
. What happens when you give a computer, instead of a predefined function to run, a set of parameters, a goal, and the ability to mutate
those parameters? You get a genetic algorithm
. At its core, genetic algorithms can best be described as Darwinian evolution of computer functions. Is it better to use a streamlined, wide-wheel-base motorcycle to cross terrain, or something that looks like a cross between a fish and a tank? This simplistic simulation shows just what's going to cause the rise of Skynet.
