Evolving Next Generation Chips Through Simulated Evolution

See how evolutionary computation is helping to build the next set of microchips. The link:

Engineers Evolve Transistors for Next-Gen Chips.

It seems that as transistors and associated components are getting smaller (nanoscale), some little production process imperfections end up having a considerable performance impact in the final product and one of the desirable aims would be finding a way to, even though those imperfections take place, the final product could deal with them without losing too much performance.

Some English researchers are investigating how to use evolutionary algorithms to cope with that problem.

Genetic Argonaut At Twitter

I have decided to follow the last Internet fad and create a twitter account for this blog. @geneticargonaut.

Some other evolutionary computation guys are already there and I think I could not miss the party. :)

See you there!
