Evolutionary Algorithms Pioneer Nic McPhee visiting Hagenberg campus

We are glad to announce that Nicolas Freitag McPhee from the University of Minnesota, Morris visited our campus after the Berlin GECCO giving many valuable hints to Patrik Kimmeswenger, who is implementing PushGP in HeuristicLab in his master thesis. Nic McPhee has authored and co-authored many relevant publications especially in the field of genetic programming like the field guide to genetic programming; his recent research interests include the analysis of GP ancestry which brought us in contact as our colleague Bogdan Burlacu has also been working in this field over the last years within the scope of his PhD thesis and has spent a research visit in Morris last year.
