For a third time Natalio Krasnogor's work has won a Humies prize, this time Silver (Bronze in 2007 and Gold in 2010). The Humies, awarded for Human-Competitive Results produced by Genetic and Evolutionary Computation, are sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group in Genetic and Evolutionary Computation. The award-winning work is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Physics (Prof. P. Moriarty, Dr. R. Wolley, PhD candidate Julian Stirling) and Computer Science (Prof. N. Krasnogor) and involves colleagues at Cornell University (Dr. A Radocea).
Silver Award (and $3000): Automated probe microscopy via evolutionary optimization at the atomic scaleby Richard A.J. Woolley, Julian Stirling, Philip Moriarty, Natalio Krasnogor and Adrian Radocea, University of Nottingham, UK.The scanning tunnelling microscope (STM) is a Noble prize winning invention that gives access to atom-scale images and manipulations. It remains however tedious to parameterize, and human-competitive tuning has been obtained by coupling Machine Vision techniques with a Cellular Genetic Algorithm.
