genetic programming
Last modified: Tuesday, March 12, 2002 

A type of programming that utilizes the same properties of natural selection found in biological evolution. The general idea behind genetic programming is to start with a collection of functions and randomly combine them into programs; then run the programs and see which gives the best results; keep the best ones (natural selection), mutate some of the others, and test the new generation; repeat this process until a clear best program emerges.

LISP is a popular language for genetic programming.
