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.

Here is a related program that demonstrates the concept of simple evolution by an iterative process involving reproduction, mutation and natural selection, all in an interactive graphical environment that let’s you control the simulation in real time

This Simulated Evolution implementation is based on a program first written by Michael Palmiter, Temple City, CA., as described by the article “Simulated Evolution: wherein bugs learn to hunt bacteria by A.K. Dewdney ” in Scientific American (Computer Recreations), May 1989.

You laugh at me for being different, but I laugh at you for being the same LOTRO Gold, the consequences of today are determined by the actions of the past Lord Of The Rings Gold, to change your future,LOTRO Gold alter your decisions today.
