More CL libs on Github

Recently I made available some GP code I had in Common Lisp (see previous post). Today I also put on my github account the library I did for Ant Colony Optimzation (cl-aco) and a few others like parsers for MKP and QAP, but also a very basic CFFI bindings for libLBFGS. Like before, these are … Continue reading More CL libs on Github

GP code on Github

Some time ago I got an email asking for the code of one of my old papers. Unfortunately the code was lost. But that reminded me that I still had some other code that could actually be made available. Essentially, some Genetic Programming (GP) libraries that I did around seven years ago (which in turn … Continue reading GP code on Github

Evolution and Deep Neural Networks

In the last few weeks, a few papers containing evolutionary techniques applied in the context of deep neural networks have been published. For someone with a background on evolutionary computing and interested in everything that is bio-inspired, these are great news! Recently we’ve seen: Evolving Deep Neural Networks , Genetic CNN, Large-Scale Evolution of Image … Continue reading Evolution and Deep Neural Networks

Reading List for F# Learning

There are several books and other resources to learn F# and when someone wants to start looking at the language, one of the first questions is which book to use. I don’t think there is a straight answer mostly because of two main reasons. First, there isn’t a single book that outshines all the others. … Continue reading Reading List for F# Learning

ELS2014: Proceedings, Videos and Slides

The organizers of this year’s European Lisp Symposium made available all the videos of the talks with the respective slides, as well as the PDF containing all the accepted papers. This is really great and everyone involved in making this happening should be congratulated! For everyone that didn’t attend (like me) it’s a good opportunity … Continue reading ELS2014: Proceedings, Videos and Slides

Simple Parallel Array Filtering in F#

Recently I was doing some data processing and since it fit nicely in a parallel setup, I changed my pipeline to use the Array.Parallel module. An easy and simple change that can speed up your task especially if it’s time consuming. Nonetheless, I also needed Array.filter and to my surprise it wasn’t available in the … Continue reading Simple Parallel Array Filtering in F#

Articles about using F# to implement Lisp

I was looking for examples of Lisp implementations using F# and found these 3 interesting series of blog posts. You can find other posts about implementing Lisp or Scheme using F# but these were the ones I found more comprehensive and different enough to compare different implementations. Although these Lisp implementations are learning experiments and … Continue reading Articles about using F# to implement Lisp
