Ever seen that movie where this guy has to do an Honours thesis and went through an extended period of staring at the computer trying to code and write technical reports and a 100-page thesis, and he finally went blind and led a pathetic life after that before dying alone? No? Well, I didn’t either. Sounds like a pretty boring movie.
Well, anyway, so I’ve finally submitted my thesis to the examiner for review. That’s a veritable mountain off my back, really. What have I gained from this test of willpower, this despairing journey of initial disappointment, this obstacle-ridden trek, this inward journey (yikes!) that made me realize that I’m just not cut out for a life in academia? Well, I can write on and on about this, recounting my experiences, or I can just stop here and link gratuitously to my thesis.
Adding a link to my (much shorter) technical paper: Technical paper – The Incremental Genetic Algorithm with the Michigan-style Classifier System (PDF format), because I see the thesis has become the number 1 result on Google for “incremental genetic algorithm”. Good to provide a shorter readup.
