Evolutionary Algorithms Create Robot Technology

Posted by: Robot Staff

Antenna
The Evolvable Systems Group at NASA Ames Research Center investigates computer algorithms that automate the design and optimization of complex engineering systems for NASA exploration missions. The core technologies are based on adaptive and evolutionary algorithm methods. The methods, which include geneticalgorithms, genetic programming, and artificial neural networks, have produced human-competitive results in real-world applications. One example is this tiny antenna, which outperformed human designs “in critical metrics such as mass and cost.” Robots are designing robots.
