Acquiring a Debt Worth Repaying: why Evolutionary Computation should gain yet further inspiration from Biology

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


We claim that the alleged "debt" owed by Genetic and Evolutionary Computation (GEC) to Biology is exaggerated. However, we do believe that Biology is potentially an extraordinarily rich source of inspiration, and that a highly fruitful way forward is to genuinely plunder it, to be more greatly inspired than at present. We would simply like to increase the debt: to acquire a debt worth repaying.
