HyperNEAT User's Page. Neuroevolution of augmenting topologies. NeuroEvolution of Augmenting Topologies (NEAT) is a genetic algorithm for the generation of evolving artificial neural networks (a neuroevolution technique) developed by Ken Stanley in 2002 while at The University of Texas at Austin.

Neuroevolution of augmenting topologies

It alters both the weighting parameters and structures of networks, attempting to find a balance between the fitness of evolved solutions and their diversity. It is based on applying three key techniques: tracking genes with history markers to allow crossover among topologies, applying speciation (the evolution of species) to preserve innovations, and developing topologies incrementally from simple initial structures ("complexifying"). Performance[edit] On simple control tasks, the NEAT algorithm often arrives at effective networks more quickly than other contemporary neuro-evolutionary techniques and reinforcement learning methods.[1][2] Complexification[edit] Implementation[edit] Extensions to NEAT[edit] rtNEAT[edit] Phased Pruning[edit] HyperNEAT[edit] Playing with Chance: On Random Generation in Playable Media and Electronic Literature.

Every day, we post links to four pieces, emphasizing evergreen interest over current events. The articles come from magazines well-known and obscure—it’s a straightforward project that serves audiences simply looking for something to read. Internet use 'good for the brain' For middle-aged and older people at least, using the internet helps boost brain power, research suggests.

Internet use 'good for the brain'

A University of California Los Angeles team found searching the web stimulated centres in the brain that controlled decision-making and complex reasoning. The researchers say this might even help to counteract the age-related physiological changes that cause the brain to slow down. The study features in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry. As the brain ages, a number of changes occur, including shrinkage and reductions in cell activity, which can affect performance.

It has long been thought that activities which keep the brain active, such as crossword puzzles, may help minimise that impact - and the latest study suggests that surfing the web can be added to the list. Lead researcher Professor Gary Small said: "The study results are encouraging, that emerging computerised technologies may have physiological effects and potential benefits for middle-aged and older adults. Meta-Optimizing Semantic Evolutionary Search. Meta-optimizing semantic evolutionary search (MOSES) is a new approach to program evolution, based on representation-building and probabilistic modeling.

Meta-Optimizing Semantic Evolutionary Search

MOSES has been successfully applied to solve hard problems in domains such as computational biology, sentiment evaluation, and agent control. Results tend to be more accurate, and require less objective function evaluations, than other program evolution systems, such as genetic programming or evolutionary programming .

Il le fera sur le long terme parce qu’il impose une structure horizontale au vieux modèle hiérarchique, mais la transition sera plus douloureuse qu’espérée, parce que les promoteurs d’Internet eux-mêmes ont failli. Souvent les startupers commencent en libre et finissent en propriétaire. Exemple, parmi une multitude, MakerBot et ses imprimantes 3D. Le don, le partage, le libre, c’est bien tant qu’on ne gagne pas une tune, ou qu’on la pique à ceux qui en gagnent. Ce n’est que du marketing. Moi-même je ne suis pas clair.
