This week’s BEACON Researchers at Work blog post is by MSU graduate student Brian Goldman. For me, some of the most enjoyable moments in research are when I’m outsmarted by my own creation. Anyone who’s spent enough time with Evolutionary … Continue reading
This week’s BEACON Researchers at Work blog post is by NC A&T undergraduate Joi Carter and graduate student Henry Williams. Have you ever read a document that you thought was forged? Perhaps you’ve received an email from your friend, but … Continue reading
BEACON Researchers at Work: Multi-objective Evolutionary Optimization to Allow Greenhouse Production/Energy Use Tradeoffs
This week’s BEACON Researchers at Work blog post is by MSU graduate student José R. Llera. My name is José R. Llera, and I received my B.S. in Computer Engineering from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez. I learned about … Continue reading
This week’s BEACON Researchers at Work post is by University of Texas at Austin postdoc Joel Lehman. Something that both fascinates me and drives my research is the creativity of natural evolution. If you asked me to solve a particular … Continue reading
BEACON Researchers at Work: What do evolution, cancer, and optical character recognition have in common?
This week’s blog post is by MSU postdoc David Knoester. In 2012, cancer accounted for about 1 of every 4 deaths in the United States. That’s 1,500 people each day. By 2020, annual cancer deaths are expected to increase to … Continue reading
This week we introduce a new occasional blog series: Evolution 101. Enjoy! If you were to ask a random person what the best example of Artificial Intelligence is out there, what do you think it would be? Most likely, it … Continue reading
