Visualizing a Genetic Algorithm Attempting to Solve the Travelling Salesperson Problem

The Travelling Salesperson Problem is a famous problem in computer science. The gist of it is as follows: "Given a list of cities and the distances between each pair of cities, what is the shortest possible route that visits each city and returns to the origin city?" It is an NP-hard problem in combinatorial optimization, … Continue reading Visualizing a Genetic Algorithm Attempting to Solve the Travelling Salesperson Problem

Creating Data Visualizations for the CBC

I recently started using Processing (processing.org) at the CBC to visualize the dependencies of the content areas on projects being built by Media Ops & Technology (MO&T). Roughly speaking, MO&T builds out platform related projects and the content areas leverage the functionality of those projects to build out their sites. The previous post here was a first sketch … Continue reading Creating Data Visualizations for the CBC
