Even More Mona Lisa Optimization

Nicolas has made interesting simulations on the same grounds of Mona Lisa's -- he even used the same painting. :)

You may find his post here and an YouTube video here.

Evolving Charles Darwin Through Simulated Evolution

Another genetic algorithm application similar to Mona Lisa evolution through genetic programming, see it here and here.

The genetic algorithm uses sets of triangles to find the best set fitting Charles Darwin portrait.

Evolving Mona Lisa Through Simulated Evolution

Amazing story this one! See it here.

It is a genetic programming algorithm designed to evolve Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. It seems that each individual is represented by 50 polygons and the fitness function is the real image of Mona Lisa. So, the polygons should be arranged as close as possible to the real one.

The final result is amazing.

Evolving Two-Wheeled Small Vehicles Through Simulated Evolution

Very interesting pointer this one, see it here.

It is a flash animation that shows you the evolution of two-wheeled small vehicles and their ability to move around a track. Some designs are very strange and deliver no motion at all. Others are extremely similar to real world vechicles, such as motocyles and automobiles, being able, untill a certain extent, to move.

So many thanks to guys for the link!
