I have re-run the evolution of Darwin’s image using 128 circles four time now. Below is a graph showing the decrease in distance between the evolved and target image over time for each of the runs (the darkest line is the first run). The initial distance value varies quite a lot between the four different runs, but by about 1000 generations, the values are approximately the same. I plan to compare this rate of evolution with the rate of evolution when there are more circles or a different rate of mutations.
Click on the image above to see selected images from the four runs of evolution, showing the first and final distance values (d).
