genetic programming
Jump to user comments
programming (GP) A programming technique which extends the
genetic algorithm to the domain of whole computer programs.
In GP, populations of programs are genetically bred to solve
problems. Genetic programming can solve problems of system
identification, classification, control, robotics,
optimisation, game playing, and pattern recognition.
Starting with a primordial ooze of hundreds or thousands of
randomly created programs composed of functions and terminals
appropriate to the problem, the population is progressively
evolved over a series of generations by applying the
operations of Darwinian fitness proportionate reproduction and
crossover (sexual recombination).
