Natural Computation Laboratory (NC-LAB)


The mission of the NC-LAB is to develop novel types of computational problem solving methods inspired by nature which are both more powerful and user-friendlier than the current state-of-the-art, and to apply them to real-world problem solving. Since the lab’s founding in 2002, its computational problem solving method of choice has been Evolutionary Computing..
