    In EvoStar

    In Napoli right now, attending EvoStar. Excellent introductory keynote by Hans Paul Schwefel, and good coffe afterwards (ask for a doppio). I'm presenting my paper this afternoon. Tonight, Spain-Italy. In Italy.

    Hi, JJ!

    What did Professor Schwefel say on his introductory keynote? Could you summary it, please?

    You should try to make daily summaries about the Evo* event. :)

    Post some pictures, JJ. :)

    Best Regards!

    Marcelo

    I took some notes. Basically, a panorama of the past, present and future of evolutionary computation. The most interesting part where the insights that took him to develop the mu*lambda strategies.
    I'll try to report, and here are some pictures

    Hi, JJ!

    Thank you very much for the pictures you took! It's always nice to see Professor Schwefel!

    Upon those insights, once he told me about some of them and I read something he wrote upon the fittest individuals of a ecosystem/population being those ones that have the minimum (or near minimal) mating rate, what means that not so rarely the fittest ones generates few offspring, an idea that has to do with the comma selection [ (mu, lambda)-ES ] in evolution strategies.

    The use of Gaussian random numbers is related to the fact that small modifications happen more frequently than larger ones in nature and so on.

    Vesuvius! Vesuvius! Take care with it, JJ! :)

    The ultra-politician guy picture is very nice! :D

    He even has a website:
    http://www.gianlucaiannone.it/

    Funny Website, JJ! :)

    You should take more pictures like that! I have never wonder that Naples could be so funny! :)

    Best Regards!

    Marcelo

    Yep, indeed; but he didn't say that exactly, what he said is that the fittest individuals are those with more grandsons, not with more sons so that the best surviving strategy is to spawn as many fit individuals as possible, not as many individuals as possible. I'll try to keep reporting (and doing tourism, it just stopped raining)
