Brownlee A (2021) Genetic Improvement @ ICSE 2021: Personal reflection of a Workshop Participant. ACM SIGSOFT Software Engineering Notes, 46 (4), pp. 28-30. https://doi.org/10.1145/3485952.3485960
Following Dr. Stephanie Forrest of Arizona State University’s keynote presentation there was a wide ranging discussion at the tenth international Genetic Improvement workshop, GI-2021 @ ICSE (held as part of the International Conference on Software Engineering on Sunday 30 th May 2021). Topics included a growing range of target systems and applications, algorithmic improvements, wide-ranging questions about how other fields (especially evolutionary computation) can inform advances in GI, and about how GI is ‘branded’ to other disciplines.
We give a personal perspective on the workshop’s proceedings, the discussions that took place, and resulting prospective directions for future research.
