What is b!Gollem ?

Gollem is a genetic programming system that evolves strategies to play the game go. You can use Gollem to referee a game between two people, you can play against the computer, you can pit Gollem against itself, or you can watch Gollem "evolve" by "breeding" new players.

Gollem is a work in progress that is nearing completion. The pages that follow provide an overview of the design of the system. The pages are organized as follows:

 o The GUI Interface
A user's guide.

 o Genetic Components
What Gollem knows, how Gollem learns.
