Join Danil Nagy for an in-depth discussion in this video The genetic algorithm, part of Generative Design Foundations.
- The genetic algorithm was first published … in the book by John Holland in 1960. … Since then it's been used to solve optimization problems … across many different industries like engineering, … logistics, and transportation. … Although many other optimization algorithms … have been developed in the years since, … the genetic algorithm remains one of the most popular … because of it's simplicity and easy application … to a wide range of optimization problems. … As the name suggests, the genetic algorithm is based loosely … on the way evolution works in nature. … In natural evolution, … species evolve based on three concepts, … reproduction, mutation, and survival of the fittest. … In nature, when an offspring is born, … it competes with others in it's species … to survive in it's environments. … If it survives long enough into adulthood, … it can reproduce with another member of it's species … to create a new offspring. … If the offspring inherits the best traits from both … of it's parents, it's likely to perform as well …
