Taking on Genetically Evolving Cellular Automata with JavaScript - Irina Shestak, Small Media Foundation
Genetically evolving cellular automata -- that's a mouthful. Let's break it down  1. We will be looking at cellular automata. A cellular automata is a set of units governed with very simple rules. These units make up a complex system, or model.   2. We can train cellular automata to genetically evolve, making themselves better overtime. We can make them adhere to a set of rules that would make the system reach a certain outcome at the end of N generations. We can even use these concepts in the wild.  3. We will be doing it all with JavaScript.
