Chaitin discusses his beginnings in computer science, growing up in the 1960s a stone’s throw from Central Park, historic scientists in his field, and more.
The Darwinian algorithm works in theory, but does not work in practice, when applied in the domain of software production.
It is theoretically possible that out of thousands of scientists working on evolutionary computation, all failed to correctly implement the Darwinian algorithm.
A number of seminal papers have been published attempting to formalize Darwin’s biological theory from the point of view of computational sciences.
I will flesh out the concept of biological information, and I will explain why significant quantities of it cannot be generated through natural processes.
