In 2002, I presented a talk in YAPC 2002 introducing a library for doing evolutionary algorithms in Perl. 7 years later, Algorithm::Evolutionary is in its 0.67 version (past its "number of the beast" 0.666), and has been used extensively, to the point of being the foundation of much of the (computer) science being done by our research group.
All is not done, however; now A::E is being integrated with POE so that evolutionary algorithms can be combined with all kinds of servers and used in client, servers, and anything in between.
During our talk, we will explain what evolutionary algorithms are, what they are being used for, how to do them with Perl (using these or other fine modules found in CPAN) and what evolutionary algorithms can do for Perl at large
