**Neuroevolution of augmenting topologies**— (NEAT) is a genetic algorithm for the generation of evolving artificial neural networks (a neuroevolution technique) developed by Ken Stanley in 2002 while at The University of Texas at Austin. It alters both the weighting parameters and… …32

**NEAT Particles**— is an Interactive evolutionary computation program that enables users to evolve particle systems intended for use as special effects in video games or movie graphics. Rather than being hand coded like typical particle systems, the behaviors of… …33

**Computational creativity**— (also known as artificial creativity, mechanical creativity or creative computation) is a multidisciplinary endeavour that is located at the intersection of the fields of artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, philosophy, and the arts.… …34

**Evolutionary algorithm**— In artificial intelligence, an evolutionary algorithm (EA) is a subset of evolutionary computation, a generic population based metaheuristic optimization algorithm. An EA uses some mechanisms inspired by biological evolution: reproduction,… …38

**John R. Ross**— John Robert Haj Ross (born May 7, 1938 in Boston, Massachusetts) is a linguist who played a part in the development of generative semantics (as opposed to interpretive semantics) along with George Lakoff, James D. McCawley, and Paul Postal. Ross… …39

**List of books in computational geometry**— This is a list of books in computational geometry. There are two major, largely nonoverlapping categories: *Combinatorial computational geometry, which deals with collections of discrete objects or defined in discrete terms: points, lines,… …40
