(Evolving) List of Projects:

  1. Solving the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) with genetic algorithms. In this project you'll implement and compare various GA techniques to solve instances of TSP from TSPLIB.
  2. Solving MAXCUT with genetic algorithms. In collaboration with Assaf Zaritsky.
  3. Hot Spots Coevolution. In collaboration with Assaf Zaritsky.
  4. Advanced Genetic Algorithm Techniques to Solve the HP Protein Folding Problem. In collaboration with Ram Janovski.
  5. Survivors: Struggle for life in a grid world. In collaboration with Barak Naveh.
  6. Evolving sorting networks.
  7. Evolving two-dimensional cellular automata by cellular programming, and displaying their space-time behavior in 3-D.
  8. Gene Expression Programming, a linear-genome version of Genetic Programming.
  9. Choose you own project. Note: This option is only open to graduates of the course Evolutionary Computation and Artificial Life.
