A must read for both the neophyte and the seasoned researcher, with all the hallmarks of a landmark book. Evolutionary Computer Vision by Gustavo Olague.
This book explains the theory and application of evolutionary computer vision, a new paradigm where challenging vision problems can be approached using the techniques of evolutionary computing. This methodology achieves excellent results for defining fitness functions and representations for problems by merging evolutionary computation with mathematical optimization to produce automatic creation of emerging visual behaviors. Miller Editor. Cartesian Genetic Programming CGP is a highly effective and increasingly popular form of genetic programming.
It represents programs in the form of directed graphs, and a particular characteristic is that it has a highly redundant genotype—phenotype mapping, in that genes can be noncoding. It has spawned a number of new forms, each improving on the efficiency, among them modular, or embedded, CGP, and self-modifying CGP. Once realized, the potential of large-scale quantum computers promises to radically transform computer science. Despite large-scale international efforts, however, essential questions about the potential of quantum algorithms are still unanswered.
Automatic Quantum Computer Programming is an introduction both to quantum computing for non-physicists and to genetic programming for non-computer-scientists. The book explores several ways in which genetic programming can support automatic quantum computer programming and presents detailed descriptions of specific techniques, along with several examples of their human-competitive performance on specific problems.
Langdon, and Nicholas F. McPhee with contributions by John R. GP is a systematic, domain-independent method for getting computers to solve problems automatically starting from a high-level statement of what needs to be done. Using ideas from natural evolution, GP starts from an ooze of random computer programs, and progressively refines them through processes of mutation and sexual recombination, until solutions emerge. All this without the user having to know or specify the form or structure of solutions in advance. GP has generated a plethora of human-competitive results and applications, including novel scientific discoveries and patentable inventions.

Linear Genetic Programming presents a variant of Genetic Programming that evolves imperative computer programs as linear sequences of instructions, in contrast to the more traditional functional expressions or syntax trees. Typical GP phenomena, such as non-effective code, neutral variations, and code growth are investigated from the perspective of linear GP. This book serves as a reference for researchers; it includes sufficient introductory material for students and newcomers to the field.

Feb 27, Costin Manda rated it it was amazing Shelves: owned. Oh, the monster of a book! If you want to learn to do genetic programming, then this is the book for you. If you need an interesting presentation of what genetic programming is, then this book is way too heavy. Let's start with the beginning.
