9.6: Genetic Algorithm: Improved Fitness Function – The Nature of Code

Hello welcome to another genetic algorithms video, in this video I want to talk about an improved fitness function, now there are so many different ways you can improve a fitness function in ways that you could design and think about a fitness function and I less mean this video to be like here’s one […]

The Human 2.0 – Genome Imperfection and the Garden of Eden | Giulio Superti-Furga | TEDxLinz

Translator: Behdad Khazaeli Reviewer: Tanya Cushman Look at yourself. Look at each other. You’re imperfect. You know, you’re short. You have flat feet. You have a bulging belly. You may lose your hair. You’re clearly not perfect. And so the question is, Do we want to be perfect? If you were to choose – and […]

Part 2: How Does New Genetic Information Evolve? Gene Duplications

Stated Clearly presents: How do new genes evolve? As we’ve learned in previous animations a gene is a long stretch of DNA containing information that codes for something, usually a protein or a group of proteins. Point mutations can edit small bits of information within a gene. modifying the type of protein it builds small […]

Genetic Code – Tales from the Genome

Okay. Did you find anything interesting? There are a couple of possible things that I’ve noticed. The first is that not all codons have an amino acid. You’ll notice over here, UAA, UAG, and UGA all code for something called a stop codon. They don’t even have an amino acid associated with them. You might […]

Evolution: Bacteria to Beethoven

Evolution. You learned about it in high school. It goes like this: Life started out with very simple forms and then gradually, over hundreds of millions of years, morphed into all the forms we see today. Bacteria to Beethoven. Not a straight line, of course…but that’s roughly how it went. This was the theory proposed […]

9.10: Genetic Algorithm: Continuous Evolutionary System – The Nature of Code

Hello and welcome to one more video about genetic algorithms. This probably won’t be my last video ever about genetic algorithms because I do have some more in my head that I’m planning to do at some point but this does kind of wrap up a bunch of the range of ideas that I’ve been […]

9.9: Genetic Algorithm: Interactive Selection – The Nature of Code

Hello, welcome to another genetic algorithms’ video.. boy I seem to be making a lot of these genetic algorithm’s videos recently this is.. in this video I’m going to explore something called interactive selection. The idea is a lot of ideas behind interactive selection pioneered by Karl Sims, here is a reference to an artwork […]

Could We Marsiform Ourselves? Using Genetic Engineering To Live on Other Worlds

As soon as people learn how inhospitable Mars, Venus, and really the entire Solar System are, they want to know how we can fix it. There’s a word for fixing a planet to make it more like Earth: terraforming. If you want to fix Mars, all you have to do is thicken and warm up […]
