Over the past few years, there has been a terrific buzz around Artificial Intelligence (AI). Major companies like Google, Apple, and Microsoft are actively working on the topic. In fact, AI is an umbrella that covers lots of goals, approaches, tools, and applications. Genetic Algorithms (GA) is just one of the tools for intelligent searching through many possible solutions. GA is powerful and broadly applicable for complex problems. Genetic algorithms are efficient algorithms whose solution is approximately optimal. The well-known applications include scheduling, transportation, routing, group technologies, layout design, neural network training, and many others.
