“Using Genetic Algorithms for U.S. Army Robot Design” at noon on Thursday 2/14 in Olin 268

Student Colloquium talk by Professor Lucas Waddell of Bucknell University

Title: Using Genetic Algorithms for U.S. Army Robot Design

Abstract: In recent years, Operations Research practitioners have increasingly utilized nature-inspired algorithms (NIAs) to solve real-world, large-scale optimization problems. One of the most popular NIAs is the Genetic Algorithm (GA), which is based on ideas from Darwin’s theory of evolution. This talk will provide an introduction to GAs through the lens of a project that Lucas worked on for the U.S. Army during his time as an Operations Research Analyst at Sandia National Laboratories.
