DHEP allows you to host an island running a Genetic Algorithm in a coevolutionary setting synthesising future super-reliable electronics such as those used in autonomous vehicles, power stations, medical equipment, aerospace. These are of increasingly paramount importance as more and more human lives rely on well functioning hardware.
Observation of population dynamics will also help us understand Evolution, not only to harness it to reach 'better than human' designs, but also to learn how migration rates, genetic diversity and the inner mechanisms of genetic recombination have concerted to reach the biodiversity and wonder of living organisms today.
DHEP is based at the University of Sussex.
Find out more at www.dhep.ga and see our fine grained statistics to check the progress of the current run, the state of all the islands, the circuit diagrams of the best solutions, various rankings for each island, and even trace genetic strains and genealogy within the whole grid.
If you're into coding, math, scripting, hacking, design, or sys admin and would like to be part of DHE give us a shout!
There's plenty of exciting stuff to get on with!.
PS: Badges ARE coming..

The Sussex users website is now back online so clients are resuming connections as normal.
This should be a rare event on such a large institutional website, once in a lifetime hopefully!.

Sussex Users Website Down
The University users webserver (used by DHEP for serving class files) is currently down. (users.sussex.ac.uk)
We are looking into alternatives but hopefully all should be back to normal soon.

DHEP Badge Design Competition!
Badges will be awarded to those making exceptional contributions to our project.
Calling all talented designers to design the badges that will be handed out at DHE! The winner will be announced here, have a special contribution badge (of their own design!), and be acknowledged here: https://dhep.ga/ack.php as well as your work being visible and admired by everyone in the community!
We are looking for badges to be attractive, eye-catching, and would be great if they represent in some way the project and activity being rewarded. There will be badges for participating in alpha & beta periods, for credit levels, going above and beyond to help the project in special ways, for islands originating certain numbers of 'best of all island' solutions, and many more...
All designs welcome at M.Garvie@sussex.ac.uk until August 20th!
