Submission + - A Brief History of Genetic Programming

Kent Simon writes: PopSci has an interesting article about John Koza and his venture into genetic programming. It recounts Koza's journey in merging concepts from Artificial Intelligence and genetic algorithms into a field that is growing in popularity and interest today.

FTA: "Kozas 1,000 networked computers dont just follow a preordained routine. They create, growing new and unexpected designs out of the most basic code. They are computers that innovate, that find solutions not only equal to but better than the best work of expert humans. His invention machine, as he likes to call it, has even earned a U.S. patent for developing a system to make factories more efficient, one of the first intellectual-property protections ever granted to a nonhuman designer."
