Genetic Algorithms and Artificial Intelligence

Life, as we know it, has an inherent complexity associated with it. It is made up of numerous intertwined and hierarchical complex adaptive systems (cas). These systems evolve and adapt at a massive scale. Ranging from the current outbreaks of various virii such as variants of Influenza, SARS, SARS-Covid-19 and others are inherently connected with a large number of life forms and species.

Recent advances in Artificial Intelligence have demonstrated the use of techniques and algorithms which are similar, even if in a very very light manner, to the complexities in the natural world. One of these very popular so-called evolutionary algorithms is the “Genetic algorithm” presented originally by the likes of Prof. John Holland (RIP). Here we present a brief overview of Genetic Algorithms.
