Members of the CSAIL AnyScale Learning For All (ALFA) were honored with the best paper award at the 2012 EvoPAR track of the Evo-Applications conference. The paper, “FlexGP: Genetic programming on the cloud,” is co-authored by Dylan Sherry, Kalyan Veeramachaneni, James McDermott and Una-May O'Reilly.
The paper presents a prototyped design for a decentralized, robust genetic programming algorithm capable of operating on the cloud.
ALFA is lead by Dr. Una-May O’Reilly, a principal research scientist at CSAIL. The group is focused on developing efficient ways to solve hard optimization and design problems in domains of high complexity.
