Playground of Evol Adventures

Rogier van der Geer, Vincent D. Warmerdam

Audience level:


In this talk we want to speak about a number of adventures we have had applying evolutionary algorithms to board games, card games and anything else.


In this talk we want to educate and entertain by showing a number of strange and wonderful examples of evolutionary algorithms and their results, all implemented in a new python library for evolutionary algorithms named 'evol'. Examples include: finding the ultimate strategy for rock-paper-scissors, how to beat your friends with sushi-go, or optimising your pub-crawl strategy in Warsaw.
