Abstract:
We propose an extension to the Genetic Programming paradigm [GP] which allows users of traditional Genetic Algorithms to evolve computer programs. To [GA] this end, we have to introduce mechanisms like transcription, editing and repairing into Genetic Programming. [GP] We demonstrate the feasibility of the approach by using it to develop programs for the prediction of sequences of integer numbers.
Notes:
Also available as MRL Technical Report 93-03 11 pages. (banzhaf:mrl:tech) 225 bit GA, 5 bit grouping encode terminal or two arg function, clean up by "editing" and "repair" to produce variable length tree shaped prog. No looping, recursion or memory. Demonstrated on learning sequences of small integers, fails on primes.
