The Genetic Improvement Workshop

The workshop itself will take place on Sunday 16th July 2017 (this date is finalised), as part of the GECCO 2017 conference, which runs until Wednesday 19th July 2017.


Keynote from Wolfgang Banzhaf!

We’re delighted to announce that the 2017 keynote will be given by Professor Wolfgang Banzhaf, a leading researcher in the field of Genetic Programming and current holder of the John R. Koza Endowed Chair in Genetic Programming.

Wolfgang is well-known for his books on Genetic Programming, Linear Genetic Programming, and Artificial Chemistries. He was the founding editor of the GPEM journal and currently chairs the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Genetic and Evolutionary Computation.

Keynote title: “Genetic Programming between Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering”

Abstract: “In this talk we shall discuss the tension in Genetic Programming between its roots in AI and its ambitions to achieve automatic programming. This tension goes back to the origin of GP. We shall look back at the original ideas and how far we have come to date. I shall end with outlining a few potential routes GP can take in the future.”
