Keywords:genetic algorithms, genetic programming
Notes:
"Contrasts GP with other Weak/strong AI methods, credit assignment, USEFUL, diplodity=redundancy=good, hierarchical code/decode of subroutines better than Koza ADF Loads of references" I realized that inherent dynamics of genetic programming encouraged certain emergent properties. The most important of these is that introns emerge naturally from the process to protect the developing program from crossover. Others in the field think this extra stuff in the genetic program is a bad thing, reflected by their choice of the term "bloating" for the effect. This chapter is the first to take a positive view on GP introns and other emergent phenomena. I think this is the first paper to associate the "extra" code in genetic programs with the intron concept.
