Genetic Programming in Action [Thilo Tanner and Kejo Starosta from Astina]

  • Jan 22, 2013 · 6:00 PM


The talk has been rescheduled for 22.jan at 6PM due to general strike scheduled for 23.jan. The venue details remain unchanged - faculty of computer and information science, classroom PR-02.

We've invited Thilo Tanner and Kejo Starosta from a swiss based company Astina that recently opened offices in Ljubljana, to talk about Genetic Programming and its applications to solve real life problems.

In this meetup we'll cover the following topics:

Timeseries trend prediction: We'll show how to create a system that predicts the future trend of a timeseries and show how to select proper fitness functions and selection methods and what are the pitfalls.

Address De-Duplication Optimization: This use case covers the parameterization and optimization of Duke, a fast and flexible deduplication engine written in Java on top of Lucene, with real world data and the help of genetic programming.


Kejo Starosta, Senior Software Engineer. Kejo studied Applied Computer Science and Media at the Willhelm Büchner University in Darmstadt. After working five years in Germany he moved to Switzerland in 2009 to work at Astina as a Senior SoftwareEngineer.

Thilo Tanner, Senior Software Engineer. Thilo studied Computer Science at the ETH Zurich. He works for Astina since 2006 as a Senior Software Engineer.

Kejo and Thilo have a profound background in enterprise software engineering as well as artificial intelligence especially in the field of machine learning.
