Genetic algorithms for battlefield operations

Marcelo De Brito of Genetic Argonaut pointed out an interesting article published by wired.com on top national security challenges for the next president.

One of these challenges is the use of genetic algorithms for battlefield operations. This reminded me of the project FOX-GA, which was one of the projects I’ve learned about while I was at the Illinois Genetic Algorithms Laboratory.

    Hi, Martin!

    Thank you very much for the pointer!

    I have been unware of FOX-GA approach. It’s nice to see military genetic algorithm applications, they are a little rare, likely due to the military essence they hold.

    Cheers!
