Possibilities and Limitations of Applying Evolvable Hardware to Real-World Applications

  • Jim TorresenAffiliated withDepartment of Informatics, University of Oslo

Abstract

Evolvable Hardware (EHW) has been proposed as a new method for designing systems for real-world applications. This paper contains a classi.cation of the published work on this topic. Further, a thorough discussion about the limitations of the present EHW and possible solutions to these are proposed. EHW has been applied to a wide range of applications. However, to solve more complex applications, the evolutionary schemes should be improved.
