  4. This video covers genetic algorithms and looks at how they are applied in 3 scenarios. 1: search problems where brute force is an impossibility (infinite monkey theorem). 2: physics-based systems 3: Interactive selection (i.e. user behavior driven fitness).

    This video is excerpted from a presentation given at Kickstarter. Full video is here: vimeo.com/63755542
