Fogol (CEO of Natural Selection, Inc.) argues that the process of evolution accounts for intelligent behavior and provides the foundation for the design of artificially intelligent machines. He discusses the history of evolutionary computation, the connections between simulated evolution and machine intelligence, and game-playing techniques that combine evolutionary algorithms with neural networks. The third edition updates research activities, particularly the use of evolutionary computation to allow a computer to teach itself to play checkers or chess.
