ArchiKluge is right
Well I'm not sure about any of that, but the design of the user interface is pretty cool. The actual "problem" being solved is not very interesting, and it isn't clear what the GA is really learning, but pretty pictures will trump substantial inquiry every time. Hat tip blprnt.blg.
