  1. AMIR!!! 😀

    it has been a long time since we last “talk” to each other!

    How are you doing, my friend? 🙂

    I am on the way to finish my final project at university upon evolving neural networks through simulated evolution.

    That post of yours is very helpful for myself!


    “[…]start from a [possibly] bad one and gradually improve it be several rounds of revising.”

    It’s not so much different from evolving something! 🙂

    Best Regards!


  2. Hi Marcelo! (:

    Yes! It’s been a really long time! (: Hope you are doing fine and I can read your papers soon.

    By the way, I completely agree that it is like a gradual optimization problem. But is it really an evolutionary one if we don’t have a population of solutions?

  3. Hi, Amir!!! 🙂

    Thanks for your kind words! 🙂

    Hmmm… despite there is not a population of texts, we could admit that there is, on the other hand, a population of words (and, going a little deeper, a – very large!! – population of letters/characters). So, combining, mutating, breeding and adapting all those words, the solution of the problem itself – that is, finding a well written text – would be feasible from the evolution viewpoint.

    But I agree with you that the evolution viewpoint makes much more sense taking into account an available population of texts. 🙂
