General Genetic Algorithms for Ruby (gga4r) is a library for executing generic algorithms easily.

Only 3 steps are needed in order to work with gga4r:

  1. Choose a clase to evolve and define for her the fitness, combine and mutate methods.

  2. With an array of last defined class instances (initial population), create a GeneticAlgorithm object.

  3. Call GeneticAlgorithm's evolve method as many times as you want.

DEISA Sessions (Distributed European Infrastructure for Supercomputing Applications)

This week I'm taking DEISA training sessions in Barcelona, they are teaching us how to submit tasks into most powerful supercomputers of Europe (DEISA Architecture).

Within this supercomputers we can meet Marenostrum, nowadays is the most powerful supercomputer in Europe and the World's fifth most powerful as you can see in It's made of 10.240 CPUs Power PCs, 20 TeraBytes of RAM and 370 TeraBytes of disk. It's placed in a old chapel which gives it a special feeling.

Today I've been lucky and I could visit inside Marenostrum as you can see in this photos:
