Self-Programming Artificial Intelligence 


Is it possible for a computer program to write its own programs? While this kind of idea could seem far-fetched, it may actually be closer than we think. This presentation introduces “AI Programmer”, a machine learning system, which can automatically generate full software programs requiring only minimal human guidance. The system uses genetic algorithms coupled with a tightly constrained programming language. We’ll cover an overview of the system design and see examples of its software-generation capabilities.
