Honoring a Genetic Algorithm Pioneer

The Genetic Argonaut blog describes a three-day event called HollandFest 09 which was held this February in Singapore to commemorate the contributions of Professor John Holland to the fields of evolutionary computation and genetic algorithms. Holland, a renowned professor in Psychology and Electrical Engineering & Computer Science at the University of Michigan, is the originator of Genetic Algorithms and one of the seminal architects of what is now known as Complexity Theory. This year marks both Holland's 80th birthday and the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth.
