About the authors

Lee Jacobson is a professional freelance software developer from Bristol, England who first began writing code at the age of 15 while trying to write his own games. His interest soon transitioned to software development and computer science which led him to the field of artificial intelligence. He found a passion for the subject after studying Genetic Algorithms and other optimization techniques at university. He would often enjoy spending his evenings learning about optimization algorithms such as genetic algorithms and how he could use them to solve various problems.
