A tutorial entitled "Genetic Algorithms and Classifier Systems" will be
presented on Wednesday afternoon, August 1, at the AAAI conference in
Boston, MA by David E. Goldberg (Alabama) and John R. Koza (Stanford).
The course will survey GA mechanics, power, applications,
and advances together with similar information regarding classifier
systems and other genetics-based machine learning systems. For further
information regarding this tutorial write to AAAI-90, Burgess Drive,
Menlo Park, CA 94025, (415)328-3123.
A five-day short course entitled "Genetic Algorithms in Search,
Optimization, and Machine Learning" will be presented at Stanford
University's Western Institute in Computer Science on August 6-10
by David E. Goldberg (Alabama) and John R. Koza (Stanford).
The course presents in-depth coverage of GA mechanics, theory and
application in search, optimization, and machine learning. Students
will be encouraged to solve their own problems in hands-on computer
workshops monitored by the course instructors. For further information
regarding this course contact Joleen Barnhill, Western Institute in
Computer Science, PO Box 1238, Magalia, CA 95954, (916)873-0576.
