Subject Re: GA Grid: Request to contribute GA library to Apache Ignite
Date Fri, 03 Nov 2017 05:08:46 GMT
Hi guys,

Yes, in my opinion genetic algorithms developed by Turik perfectly fit our ML component as
a separate package. Look, *ML* is a building block on top of Ignite distributed storage and
compute grid. Same is true about GA grid. So, why don’t we merge GA into ML?

Nikita, Yuri and the rest of ML folks please chime in.
