Final Project

Here is my webcast: Final Project.

P.s. I plan on posting this to YouTube after it's graded, so if you see anything that needs corrected before broader distribution, please let me know. Thanks!


Midterm Report Materials

Video opening: Presentation Opening (I made the audio and compiled online footage. No, unfortunately I didn't make the visuals from scratch. =) )

The current version of my PowerPoint presentation is here: Media:Genetic_Algorithms_Apr9.pptx

The graph in slide 4 comes from a program I have written to illustrate genetic algorithms. My remaining work for the project is to flesh out more details in the PowerPoint presentation, incorporate my example code, and finally, make a webcast.

And just for fun: Media:Opinionated_Lessons_Spread.pdf


Comment:
It is good to see your presentation material. I think it is a good idea to include an example ('Tiddlywinks' part) of the genetic algorithm. I'm not sure if you already have in mind the following, but I have a suggestion. It would be good to show the graph of 'the best solution performance vs. generations'. It would be helpful to visualize how your solutions are evolved over generations. Joyce Whang 02:06, 21 April 2012 (CDT)

Noting here that we discussed this in person, so I don't need to comment here.Wpress 15:43, 21 April 2012 (CDT)
