Hacking Roller Coaster Tycoon with Genetic Algorithms and Go

Sure, you're good at designing coasters in Roller Coaster Tycoon, but you could make even cooler coasters if you let Go build them for you. In this sessions we'll discuss the types of problems genetic algorithms are good at solving, walk through a simple genetic algorithm, and discuss ways to evaluate the fitness of a given mutation. Finally we'll discuss why Go is a perfect fit for interfacing with Roller Coster Tycoon and for writing a coaster generator.
