The Wow of Genetic Algorithms

Roey Chasman

Genetic Algorithms are algorithms that are modeled from biological reproduction found in nature.

GAs attempt to find optimal solutions to problems sets, just like in reality these algorithms adapt to find new solutions when their environments change.

GAs carry metaphors that help us think about how to relate reality to code for creating novel abstractions. I hope to inspire ideas of how to implement models of other mappings of reality that could potentially have useful application.

Examples are shown as visualizations done in processing. Processing.js is a visualization language which compiles to JavaScript and renders into fancy graphics. Code examples require no experience in processing.
