Can we gather any kind of intelligence or knowledge through simulations of evolution? Evolutionary computation is an approach based on natural evolution for problem-solving and optimization. It uses the Darwinian principle of natural selection and analogs of various naturally occurring operations, including crossover, mutation, gene duplication, gene deletion.
Evolutionary methods for automatically creating a computer program are one of the main topics in the field of evolutionary computation. There are now 37 instances where these methods have produced human-competitive results: 22 instances where they have created the functionality of a previously patented invention, and 2 instances where they have created a patentable new invention.
In this presentation, we overview evolutionary computation and its applications to program generation. Then we describe evolutionary algorithms that use neither crossover nor mutation but uses probability distributions, and review recent studies concerning an approach based on a probabilistic model. Finally we discuss the mechanism of evolutionary computation from a viewpoint of "Complex Systems."
