5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, practical, inspiring, 23 Jun. 2003
This review is from: AI Techniques for Game Programming (Game Development) (Paperback)
This is an excellent book on genetic algorithms and neural networks.
I have studied neural nets and GA, but this is the most interesting book I've read so far. It is written in such a way, that you can follow even if you have a limited (A-level) maths background. The author gives a fair programming and math explanations where needed.
If you do have a high level of programming/math background, it is easy to skip the relevant chapters.
It is the best book that gives you the 'feeling' of when and how to use these techniques, his examples are fun and easy to follow.
Unlike the rest of the LaMothe's books, this one has only a limited (just 30 pages) background on windows, and only the necessary explaining of the code.
I feel this book is very inspiring for a starter on GA and NN.
It has also managed to put together very nicely all the concepts on NN and GA that I've read during the past 8 years.
Highly recommended
