In San Francisco and in Strasbourg, two researchers are investigating the same topic: developing artificial intelligence to a level at which it can seek and find solutions without human involvement. The work of Risto Miikulainen from Finland and Français Pierre Collet from France is based on evolutionary computation, an AI field that takes inspiration from the theory of evolution, and in particular from Darwin’s principle of natural selection, to solve complex problems. “Artificial evolution” (AE) is already generating results of exceptional quality in a wide variety of areas, including gas pipeline flow control, airfoil design, university scheduling and robot trajectory planning. Combined with deep learning, AE should some day make it possible to design autonomous computers.
