Evolutionary Electronics

Adrian Thompson is a scientist on the faculty at the University of Sussex who specializes in "Evolutionary Electronics", which is the use of genetic algorithms in the design of electronic system. Thompson calls this type design of evolutionary because it resembles natural selection, with "selection acting repeatedly upon heritable variation." He has researched the idea of self-designing circuits which could be used to build neural network chips.
