We will talk about genetic algorithms, inspired by the process of natural selection that belongs to the larger class of evolutionary algorithms. Genetic algorithms are used to generate solutions to optimization and search problems by relying on bio-inspired operators and follow this process:
  • Randomly generate a population of individuals
  • Evaluation 
  • Termination checks 
then, iteratively: 
  • Selection
  • Crossover
  • Mutation
  • Evaluation 
  • Termination checks
Genetic algorithms behavior will be illustrated by playful use-cases, such as ToBeOrNotToBe, or Smart Rockets., etc.
