writes "I have just started a computer science masters degree at the Air Force Institute of Technology. I'm interested in researching and writing a thesis on intelligent agent architectures that use evolutionary algorithms, partially because these are all very interesting fields for me, and because I think agent architectures are the cutting edge for both the military and the commercial sector. As I've read on /., distributed computing algorithms are the wave of the future. But, before committing loads of time and thought to my own singular vision, I would like to poll the wisdom of /. What topic would you recommend and why? Also, if you have any particularly interesting insight into the fields I've mentioned, I'd like to hear it. Thank you, you brilliant, beautiful denizens of the 'net!"
