Double Dutch jump roping is a fun activity that requires skill. The activity is mainly played for recreation and for competitions. Industry has neglected to see the vast number of benefits in this activity, such as enhanced cardiovascular system, improved coordination and agility, and it is generally a very entertaining activity. The main limitation in the sport is that much of the skill comes from being able to turn the ropes.
This invention is directed to a method and architecture for efficiently solving complex problems requiring information retrieval from multiple, logically interrelated, distributed databases. The method is well suited for use in the manufacturing Virtual Design Environment. The method uses coevolutionary agents incorporating evolutionary algorithms located at different nodes in a distributed network. The coevolutionary agents conduct localized database searches and evolve at their respective nodes while sharing information with other coevolutionary agents working the same problem.
