Genetic Programming III: Darwinian Invention and Problem Solving

Last updated September 2, 1999.

"Koza, Bennett, Andre, and Keane's evolutionary algorithm builds more complex and useful structures than the other approaches to computer learning that I have seen." John McCarthy, Computer Science Department, Stanford University


"John Koza and his co-authors continue their relentless pursuit of a holy grail in computer science: automatic programming." Moshe Sipper, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EFTL), Lausanne


"John Koza and colleagues have demonstrated that genetic programming can be used to search highly discontinuous spaces and thereby find amazing solutions to practical engineering problems." Bernard Widrow, Dept. of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University


"In this impressive volume, the authors demonstrate that genetic programming is more than an intriguing idea --it is a practical synthesis method for solving hard problems." Nils J. Nilsson, Computer Science Department, Stanford University


"Through careful experiment, keen algorithmic intuition, and relentless application the authors deliver important results that rival those achieved by human designers." David E. Goldberg, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

This 45-minute videotape surveys the new book Genetic Programming III: Darwinian Invention and Problem Solving. The book shows how genetic programming can automatically create a computer program to solve a problem. Fourteen of the results are competitive with human-produced results. Ten infringe on previously issued patents or duplicate the functionality of previous patents in novel and creative ways.
