GEF: A Self-Programming Robot Using Grammatical Evolution

Charles Peabody, Jennifer Seitzer
In this work, we present GEF ("Grammatical Evolution for the Finch"), a system that employs grammatical evolution to create a Finch robot controller program in Java.  ...  Grammatical Evolution (GE) is that area of genetic algorithms that evolves computer programs in high-level languages possessing a BNF grammar.  ...  By realtime, we mean evolution of new versions of a controller program during execution of a former version.  ...
