Opaque AI

In 2004 NASA scientists and engineers embarked on a two-year journey to develop artificial intelligence software that could design a satellite antenna. They came up with an algorithm modelled on Darwinian evolution which takes specific design parameters such as size and frequency bands and generates random antenna designs. These are
