A random walk through some programming projects

I planned to write about the moderate progress I had made in improving the program I have to organise data from the Guardian Data Store, and a few of the more interesting correlations I have found by analysing the data. However, I got slightly sidetracked on a related project of learning how various clustering algorithms work (specifically k-means clustering).

Project:

Evolving Images

A genetic algorithm that uses overlapping transparent circles to approximate an image. Includes analysis of the effect of altering mutation rate and population size.
