The iDesign Lab is run by Greg Hornby. Our research covers all aspects of computer optimization and design, from advanced search and optimization algorithms to powerful meta-representations for open-ended design. We are also working on building a next-generation, Interactive Evolutionary Design system.
Some highlights of our research include:
- Evolving the dynamic gait used on the consumer version of Sony's Aibo.
- Evolving an antenna for NASA's Space Technology 5 mission.
- The Age-Layered Population Structure (ALPS) Evolutionary Algorithm (EA).
- Measures of Complexity.
- Generative Representations for open-ended design.
