Comic description

The comic follows lives of a group of highly "normal" aliens, specifically Aquila and Teren as they face exaggerated shenanigans of social, work and mathematical life.

Moved to Tapastic.

Random average dude, really. I love burgers though (and coding and chocolate)!
Reader is preferred. Not an author but I create occasionally.
I like a lot of stuff but leaning more towards simple/r looking or easy getting into stuff with a lot of charm and great author personality :>
Mostly on Tapastic now.

The algorithm is at least. Still, mathematical models are just approximations but they did come from observed facts. Whether only some species of ants or only in some situation... I cannot say.

I know :D
But what you are actually planning I do not know D:

This might shock you a bit, but if that one paragraph was anything to go on, you might know more about real life ants than I do.

Speaking of genetic algorithms (GA), what is amazing how we used behaviors observed in the nature and turned them into said algorithms. Further proof that nature knows its stuff and it is not a coincidence how it does things. It is all properly planned and evolved and adjusted to past outputs.

One such GA is based on migratory birds and how some of them work. There is a leader or leaders who set the direction of the flock and the speed of flight. Simply said, the orientation of the vector of velocity says where to look for the optimal values and its absolute value says what to look for (+/-) and just like with the birds if one bird decides to change the direction and speed and most agree it is better, the flock starts following that bird. Similarly here.

AND one other is based on how ants look for their path to food. They leave behind chemical marks that attract other ants that follow the path. In time, they create a path with the strongest scent which happens to be the optimal path between the food and the anthill and all the other ants stick to it.

Fun fact: Economists have their own ways to find optimal values and it seems that no matter how many times you show them results and research papers saying GAs are better, they silently ignore it. I mean that. They will not reply, LMAO :D
They like their stuff, I guess.
