Genetic Programming

Subject Name: 
Cognitive Science
Course Number: 
Hampshire College
Genetic programming is a computational technique that harnesses the mechanisms of natural evolution -- including genetic recombination, mutation, and natural selection -- to synthesize computer programs automatically from input/output specifications. It has been applied to a wide range of problems spanning several areas of science, engineering, and the arts. In this course students will explore several variations of the genetic programming technique and apply them to problems of their choosing. Prerequisite detail: One programming course (in any language).
Quantitative Skills Independent Work In this course, students are expected to spend at least six to eight hours a week of preparation and work outside of class time. This includes time for reading, programming, and project and presentation development.
