"An open-ended process of research and development is now required to handle questions that were traditionally asked in Artificial Life, for example, how can we continuously generate innovative solutions?"

"Natural (as opposed to artificial) selection has so far been largely ignored by the EC community. Yet that is where the real power of evolution lies."

"We know that 'purist' EC is of highly limited use, whereas hybridisations deliver the goods time and time again."

"Nothing less than a paramount interdisciplinary effort of biology, cybernetics, material sciences, nanotechnology, microsystems, robotics, artificial life, evolvable electronic hardware and EC will suffice."

"New "viral", "bacterial", "memetic", algorithms will be grown and integrated into the paradigm."

"People are already trying to construct quantum computers but the art of designing algorithms to run on those computers is still very much a black art - and EAs seem to me to be an ideal tool for tackling this."

"EC should not be seen as a standalone technology. In the development of highly interactive systems EC provides the underlying search capability and other technologies provide the necessary control, information extraction, data-processing and presentation tasks."

"We should build stronger bridges to the societies that deal with exact optimization, approximation and other appropriate approaches. They often have tools that can be combined with evolutionary algorithms in highly effective ways."

"The Future of EC is within soft computing."
