In memoriam John H. Holland 1929-2015
We're sorry to hear that the inventor of the genetic algorithm, John H. Holland, has passed away at 86. He was a pioneer in the study of complex adaptive systems and an inspirational source for many researchers including our research group. The importance of his work cannot be emphasized enough and it will certainly continue to influence generations of researchers that are yet to come.
