  • It has recently been suggested that evolution exploits a form of fitness landscape smoothing within eukaryotic sex due to the haploid-diploid cycle. This short paper presents a simple modification to the standard evolutionary computing algorithm to similarly benefit from the process. Using the well-known NK model of fitness landscapes it is shown that the benefit emerges as ruggedness is increased.
