Evolutionary algorithms surpass humans July 29, 2007

Posted by Al in : clever,computers,design , trackback

We’re heading towards a time where Skynet and Terminators may actually become a possibility. For a long time evolutionary algorithms have been around, designing and manipulating themselves to produce their optimum results. However, human ingenuity has always been their better, until recently. Now EA’s are starting to produce results that no human would every have been able to produce, and are able to produce patentable designs as well. As processing power continues to grow, then so will the speed and accuracy of these EA’s, until it becomes pointless us even interfering with these systems as they grow to produce more of everything. When they start producing designs humans can’t even understand, then that’s the time to really start to worry.
