United Kingdom only AI Research Strengths
- Prof Alan Bundy has recently asked for help compiling a report
on the UK's AI Research Strengths (this will be used to guide future
research funding). More specifically he asks for:
Examples where applying Darwin's ideas of natural selection to the
automatic evolution of computer programs has had a specific impact.
ie some way the world has changed as a result of this work. It could
be purely academic or be an industrial impact, for instance.
Please send __short__ replies directly to him.
