Using evolution to make a better plant: Researchers successfully simulate photosynthesis and design a better leaf
"Using “evolutionary algorithms,” which mimic evolution by selecting for desirable traits, the model hunted for enzymes that – if increased – would enhance plant productivity. If higher concentrations of an enzyme relative to others improved photosynthetic efficiency, the model used the results of that experiment as a parent for the next generation of tests. "
I remember using genetic algorithms in my AI for path finding (for games), but anyway I thought this article was neat.
Sounds made up...
No, I am not angry at your imaginary friends or enemies.
