7:00 – 5:00 ASRC

  • Got Will’s extractor working last night
  • A thought about how Trump’s popularity appears to be crumbling. Primordial jumps don’t have the same sort of sunk cost that stylistic change has. If one big jump doesn’t work out, try something else drastic. It’s the same or less effort than hillclimbing out of a sinking region
  • Dissertation. Fix the proposal sections as per yesterday’s notes
  • Evolver
    • Write out model files as eval_0 … eval_n. If the new fitness is better than the old fitness, replace best_0 … best_n
    • Which si turning out to be tricky. Had to add a save function to save at the right time in the eval loop
