Neuroevolution Methods Show Significant Success
The Darwinian algorithm works in theory, but does not work in practice, when applied in the domain of software production.
The State of the Art in Evolutionary Computation
As with early AI, the claims are inflated, unsupported, and the solutions do not scale to real world problems. Perhaps an EA “winter” is long overdue.
On Evolutionary Computation
From the early 1950s, multiple well-documented attempts to make Darwin’s algorithm work on a computer have been published.
What Can and Can’t Darwin’s Algorithm Compute?
A number of seminal papers have been published attempting to formalize Darwin’s biological theory from the point of view of computational sciences.
Why We Don’t Evolve Software: A Computer Scientist Considers Darwinian Theory
Software engineers are trained in design principles, and also have real experience of how complex functional systems appear and change constructively.
