in reply to Instrumenting a genetic algorithm.

Perhaps you might start with a chart showing the progress as well as all the metrics you can think of to plot. Keep a manual control over the continue/abort decision for now.

As a human viewing it, you'll probably have a decent prediction of whether it is worth continuing. You can then pick the metrics and limits that match your predictions best, and use them to grind the remaining tests unattended.

Or, go meta, and set a genetic algorithm free on deciding when to stop your processing. :)

    I would still need to define stop criteria. In all seriousness, this is inching in that direction; but I'm trying to get a handle on how to define that heuristic.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
