Professor of Computer Science Lee Spector won a gold medal at the 2004 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO), held last summer in Seattle. He was one of 11 scholars presenting results produced by genetic and evolutionary computation during the previous year and judged to be “human-competitive” according to eight specified criteria. His winning entry was based on results published in his book, Automatic Quantum Computer Programming: A Genetic Programming Approach. Spector, dean of the School of Cognitive Science, has also been re-elected to the executive board of the International Society for Genetic and Evolutionary Computation.
