John Hawkins's Term Project Page
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
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 have a question about the problem setting. It is guaranteed that each circle is generated in such a way that any two of them are not overlapped, at all? I'm not sure if you already have in mind the following, but I have a suggestion. You can 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)
