Semiotic Programming

A proposed new paradigm

Over the last number of years I have also been undertaking some theoretical research into a new approach to programming: Semiotic Programming.

Evolutionary Algorithms for Optimisation

Ph.D. in Artificial Intelligence

Before getting into the world of commercial computing I wrote a Ph.D. in Aritificial Intelligence and Computer Science at the University of Sussex. The research looked at how and when evolutionary techniques of random variation and selection could be used effectively to solve certain kinds of optimisation problems.

The thesis is available online from the British Library's e-theses service:
Towards a rational methodology for using evolutionary search algorithms
