Abstract

http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/search/searchresult.jsp?queryText=%28scrubbing+%3Cin%3E+metadata%29+%3Cand%3E+%289220+%3Cin%3E+punumber%29&coll2=ieeecnfs&coll3=ieecnfs&history=yes&reqloc=others&scope=metadata

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)
Additional Information: Originality: Investigates the novel idea that a minimal hardware genetic algorithm can effect self-repair using existing triple-mode redundancy as the fitness measure in space missions. Rigour: Provides statistical analysis of the time to repair, and some example hardware designs. Significance: The approach is competitive with work by NASA's own scientists, and is suited to "last resort"applications to save deep space missions; research continues. Impact: Bringing evolutionary work to this respected specialised electronics forum was an achievement - in the 9 out of 10 conferences to that date for which data were available, none of the other 413 papers' titles refer to evolutionary methods.
