Explorations in design space: unconventional electronics design through artificial evolution
Three hypotheses are formulated. First, in the "design space" of possible electronic circuits, conventional design methods work within constrained regions, never considering most of the whole.Expand

Dynamic data integration using Web services
TLDR
We address the problem of large-scale data integration, where the data sources are unknown at design time, are from autonomous organisations, and may evolve. Expand

Understanding Inherent Qualities of Evolved Circuits: Evolutionary History as a Predictor of Fault Tolerance
TLDR
The paper seeks to determine the underlying mechanisms that produce one possible inherent quality, 'Populational Fault Tolerance', by using various strategies including the observation of constituent components used throughout evolutionary history. Expand
