Scalability remains an issue for program synthesis:
- We don’t yet know how to generate sizeable algorithms from scratch.
- Generative approaches such as GP still work best at the scale of expressions (though some recent promising results).
- Formal approaches require a strong mathematical background.
- ... but human ingenuity already provides a vast repertoire of specialized algorithms, usually with known asymptotic behaviour.
Given these limitations, how can we best use generative hyper-heuristics to improve upon human-designed algorithms?
