Artificial Intelligence can be an intimidating topic to approach. You might be thinking that it's a topic perhaps better handled by academia or tech giants like Google.. Nonsense! Genetic Algorithms are an example of Artificial Intelligence that is easy to learn and easy to implement on your own. And you don’t even need to know Calculus!

I’ll begin this talk by explaining Genetic Algorithm basics and throughout the talk I’ll show demonstrations that progressively increase in complexity. In doing so you’ll understand the types of problems a Genetic Algorithm is suited for and their full potential will become apparent. By the end of this talk you’ll be armed with the knowledge to evolve your own solutions.
