Tzofia is a team leader at OverOps (formerly Takipi), helping developers know when and why their code breaks in production. She recently completed her Masters Degree in Computer Science, wherein she dealt with how to apply deep learning methods to enhance image quality. Previously, Tzofia worked on big data distribution storage systems at Thomson Reuters. She is passionate about code simplicity, and about culture in development teams.
Evolutionary algorithms open windows to where machines and biology meet. In this talk we’ll explore how evolutionary algorithms mimic and borrow from the way that Mother Nature solves problems – the road, from solving puzzles, to social sciences, to designing new kinds of satellite antennas. We’ll see how we can use plain Scala to code evolutionary algorithms, and see the existing libraries that can help us save some time.
