This entire Live Stream is dedicated to Genetic Algorithms! I cover what defines a genetic algorithm and how it relates to brute force algorithms. I also use a genetic algorithm to solve the Shakespeare Monkey problem and other programming challenges.

16:45 – Presenting today’s topics
35:01 – Part 1: Intro to Genetic Algorithms
58:48 – Part 2: Shakespeare Monkey problem
1:43:43 – Part 3: Steps to a Genetic Algorithm
2:07:37 – Part 4: Using the Steps with a code example
2:35:42 – Addendum: Previous example in Processing
2:43:48 – Part 5: Using the algorithm in various examples
3:01:24 – Conclusion
