      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.

      Many thanks

      Bill

      Thanks for this. Can you point to some specific impacts you think this wor
      k
      has had, ie some way the world has changed as a result of this work? It could b
      e
      purely academic or be an industrial impact, for instance.
