20th Anniversary issue of the Genetic Programming & Evolvable Machines journal

NCRA researchers (Róisín Loughran, Tony Brabazon and Michael O’Neill) have published three articles in the 20th Anniversary issue of the journal Genetic Programming & Evolvable Machines. Two articles provide an overview of research in application areas we have been focusing on as a group for sometime, Finance & Economics (https://rdcu.be/b4KkQ), and Computational Creativity (https://rdcu.be/b4KkT). The third article, “Automatic Programming: The Open Issue?” (https://rdcu.be/b4KkV) follows on from an article by O’Neill et al that appeared in the 10th Anniversary issue highlighting Open Issues in the field of GP, and raises a challenge to the community to re-ignite a focus on Automatic Programming, the open issue, which we previously referred to as the “elephant in the room”.
