Cuckoo Search Using Evolutionary Algorithms to Optimise Materials – Dr Ganesh Balasubramanian, Lehigh University

Mar 27, 2018engineering and tech, physical sciences

From the metal in our cars to the circuits in our phones, the materials we use in our everyday lives can be meticulously engineered on a molecular scale to suit our requirements. However, there are so many possible arrangements of atoms and molecules at this scale that it is incredibly difficult for scientists to engineer materials optimised for the tasks they are designed to perform. Dr Ganesh Balasubramanian and his team at Lehigh University are working on solving this problem with help from an unlikely source of inspiration – the female cuckoo bird.
