Main page - Introduction to Genetic Algorithms - Tutorial with Interactive Java Applets These pages introduce some fundamentals of genetic algorithms. Pages are intended to be used for learning about genetic algorithms without any previous knowledge from this area. Only some knowledge of computer programming is assumed. You can find here several interactive Java applets demonstrating work of genetic algorithms.

Autodesk Kynapse Kynapse has been succeeded by Autodesk® Gameware Navigation, a completely new product that was designed by the same team that has been working on Kynapse for nearly a decade. Gameware Navigation was designed to improve the AI design and iteration experience to enable the creation of more complex, ambitious AI to meet the requirements of next-generation game developers. Learn more about Gameware Navigation AI - Simple Genetic Algorithm (GA) to solve a card problem Download demo project (includes source code) - 11.5 Kb Introduction This article describes how to solve a logic problem using a Genetic Algorithm. It assumes no prior knowledge of GAs. In fact, half of this article is dedicated to explaining the internal structure of a Genetic Algorithm. So what is the problem domain we are trying to solve?

Top 10 eCommerce Gamification Examples that will Revolutionize Shopping Shopping has evolved so much from traditional market exchanges. It completely transformed from acquiring of needed goods into a rich experience that integrates deeply into every single culture of civilizations that can afford to power such an activity. People shop for fun, and for many (ahem, me not included), shopping could still be an epic win after spending 3 hours in a mall without buying a single item.

Current state and the future of HTML5 games Browser games are, in the vast majority, developed using Flash technology, however more and more often we come across HTML5 productions. What is the reason behind the growing popularity of this technology, and why are game creators so willing to sacrifice Flash for HTML5? The answer to this question should be preceded by a brief explanation: HTML5 is not a programming language (despite the common phrase “HTML5 applications”, games are programmed in the JavaScript language), but rather it delivers APIs for new solutions like Canvas, WebGL or WebAudio, which are responsible for crucial components within game creation allowing them to run in the browser. The game's foundation is Canvas on which – colloquially speaking – we draw; this particular element makes programming graphics displays possible. Additionally, thanks to WebGL, Canvas allows us to draw graphics that are hardware accelerated by GPU. Why not Flash?

AIspace These tools are for learning and exploring concepts in artificial intelligence. They were developed at the Laboratory for Computational Intelligence at the University of British Columbia under direction of Alan Mackworth and David Poole. They are part of the online resources for Artificial Intelligence: Foundations of Computational Agents. If you are teaching or learning about AI, you may use these tools under the terms of use. Mozilla Rewards Digital Literacy With New Webmaker Badges Over the weekend, Mozilla launched Mozilla Webmaker Badges to “recognize the skills that you learn” while making “awesome webmaking projects” (and for participating in the Mozilla Webmaker community and events). Here are the badges you can earn: “As users complete projects on – like creating web pages, animated GIFs, or learning the fundamentals of programming — they can earn digital badges linked to their identity,” Mozilla explains. “This provides a lasting record of their skills and achievements, and shows off their new skills to teachers, classmates, peers or future colleges and employers, backed by Mozilla.”

Back in December I wrote about's use of Badgeville as their weapon of choice for building customer incentive through a Facebook badge program in an effort to involve their fans in the buying process. Badgeville won the Audience Choice Award when it launched at the Tech Crunch Disrupt last September and the demand for their social reward system has gone nowhere but up. Industry leading brands like Island Def Jam (Universal Music), The Active Network, and more have signed on with Badgeville to harness the viral power of gamification to help reach user-driven objectives, turning it into profit.
