Automated Algorithm Design at Georgia Institute of Technology

I was a research assistant with the Automated Algorithm Design Team.

Automated Algorithm Design (AAD) is a project dedicated to developing a framework that fundamentally alters the development of algorithms. We desire to create an automated method that starts with the best human algorithms and then dispassionately develops hybrid algorithms that outperform existing methods. Next, we prove that these algorithms can also be studied by humans for inspiration in development of new algorithm and optimization methods.

I was working within the Stocks subteam of AAD. My work was to program stock trading related primitives, objective/reward functions, and genetic programming frameworks to alter the use of machine learning techniques in developing hybrid algorithms for stock price prediction. We are building on top of EMADE (Evolutionary Multi-objective Algorithm Design Engine) built by the AAD team.
