Dumb question:

I've just encountered the term simulated annealing and a discussion of annealing algorithms vs genetic algorithms.

http://www.cs.helsinki.fi/u....sa....sa.html

The difference seems to be that an annealing algorithm selects only one child per generation to produce the next generation.

That would make Weasel and it's relatives an annealing algorithm rather than a genetic algorithm?

This came up in a discussion of Chaitin and his mathematical proof of evolution.

--------------
Any version of ID consistent with all the evidence is indistinguishable from evolution.
