Dartmouth Trip

  • Lee touted lexicase as potentially good for their work
  • We got a bladder cancer data set to try things with.
  • Lee did some initial hackings, starting with simple trees, and is now trying Clojush
  • Tim will be working on this.

No difference between tags and no tags 🙁


It could be that instructions are no-oping near the beginning of programs, either because of a bug or just because the required stacks are empty. We could track the number of no-oping instructions to see if it increases throughout a run. It could be interesting to see what percent of instructions noop at each program position during each generation — you could have generations on the x-axis and program positions on the y-axis, and a heatmap showing what percent of instructions noop.
