Evolutionary ComputationAssessmentExam and continuous assessmentI50% exam (2 hours), plus50% contnuous assessment (25% CA01 + 25% CA02)ILevel 4/M (Evo Comp): contains some fraction of assessmentrequiring more theory / literature understanding (LO4)ILevel 3/H (Evo Comp): focuses on LO1-LO3.IThe continuous assessment (coursework, submission online):ILevel 3/H (Evo Comp): 07 Mar 2022 and 25 Apr 2022ILevel 4/M (Evo Comp): 07 Mar 2022 and 25 Apr 2022IFormative elements (quizzes, self-study tasks) are includedwhere appropriateWe will try to get you out of the cave, here and there... .
Evolutionary ComputationAssessmentStructure of week (not always the same)IPre-available material. This may be 2-3 pre-recorded unitsand/or reading and self-study material.ITwo on-campus (Tue/Thu) sessions and one online (Fri)session - extended versions of above where you can interact.IAnything unclear?Ask in the Teams channel for the respective week...IWe plan some end-of-week activity each week which can be aself-study recall sheet, an online quiz, or a wrap-up list withkey items of the week.
Evolutionary ComputationAssessmentStructure of term (tentative)IWeek 1: Intro; randomized algorithms; genetic algorithmsIWeeks 2-4: More genetic & evolutionary algoriths, focusing onpractical aspects of implementation (Shan He)IWeeks 5/6: submission of CA1IWeek 5: more background on genetic algorithms (for CA1)IWeeks 6-8: more biology, Evolutionary Dynamics, Theory /Computational Complexity, Cellular AutomataIWeek 9: Applications (and MSc Projecs) + Outlook(break)ISubmission of CA2IWeeks 10+11: More theory background, towards final examIThe final exam (and the 100% Supplementary AssessmentExam) is time-constrained and hence will not explicitelyinclude coding HOWEVER coding-related questions may occur
