The State-of-the-Art in Evolutionary Computation

As with early AI, the claims are inflated, unsupported, and the solutions do not scale to real world problems. Perhaps an EA “winter” is long overdue. Source Read More Evolution…

The Advantages of a Bayesian Approach to ID

Lydia McGrew gives the analogy that there is always a possibility that prehistoric civilizations did not have the ability or desire to make arrowheads. Source Read More Evolution News

A Bayesian Approach to Intelligent Design

I have come to think of evidence in Bayesian terms and this has in turn impacted the way I think about the biological arguments for ID. Source Read More Evolution…
