Priberam Machine Learning Lunch Seminar: "Genetic Programming"

Date: February 15, 2011
Place: Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade Técnica de Lisboa (room PA2, Pós-Graduação building, IST – Campus Alameda)

This Priberam Machine Learning Lunch Seminar will be given by Sara Silva, senior researcher of the KDBIO group at INESC-ID Lisboa, will be the speaker in this seminar focused on "A Tutorial on Genetic Programming". Genetic Programming (GP) is the youngest paradigm inside the Artificial Intelligence field called Evolutionary Computation. Created by John Koza in 1992, it can be regarded as a powerful generalization of Genetic Algorithms, but unfortunately it is still poorly understood outside the GP community. The goal of this tutorial is to provide motivation, intuition and practical advice about GP, along with very few technical details.
