3 IlliGAL Members or Alums vying for 2006 Humie
Koza's Human Competitive Machine Intelligence Competition (The Humies) has 8 applicants vying for $10,000 in prize money (see here). Two of the entries have ties to IlliGAL. Kalyan Deb's entry (with Aravind Srinivasan) is entitled Innovization: Innovating design principles through optimization, and Kumara Sastry heads up a 7-person UIUC team concerned with Multiobjective Genetic Algorithms for Multiscaling Excited-State Direct Dynamics in Photochemistry. Best of luck to all contestants, but the judges need to understand that I have a kid going to Northwestern University next year.
