Test And here’s the full test harness. 6. Run Now it can find the solution very quickly. 101010110100101 ... 7. Benchmarks Since it runs so fast we’ll benchmark this project with a longer array. As with the Guess Password benchmark I’m choosing an array length that takes between 1 and 2 seconds on average on my box. You may want to select a different length. test(4000)) We can see in the updated benchmarks that eliminating the string conversion may also have given us a tiny performance improvement in Guess Password.

Summary In this chapter we learned the difference between genotype and phenotype. This was the first project we’ve had where the genotype was different from the phenotype. We also learned that we can easily make the engine select for gene sequences with lower fitness values instead of higher ones, should that be useful in solving a problem.

Then have a partner blindfold you and drop the coins on a table top. Your goal is to turn all the coins yellow-side up. If you turn one yellow-side up they tell you it was a success. Otherwise, they undo the change and tell you it was a failure. To keep you from building a mental map they could optionally move the coin somewhere else afterward. Tough game right? Now think about possible changes to the coin game that would make it solvable. For example, what if they were to remove the coin from the table if you turn it yellow-side up.
